A good teacher is always learning. What is something you are learning about recently?
Advice
What is something new that you are recently interested in? Here is a list of things you can talk about: 1) a new hobby or sport you're passionate about 2) a new country or place travelled 3) a new dish you cooked or tried 4) an insightful book or TV show Show the interviewer that you're interesting, and always interested. Make some connections to your teaching and tell them how you've applied or plan to apply what you've learned to reach your students, academically or otherwise.
Answer examples
"I recently watched a Netflix show called 13 Reasons Why which delves deeply and unabashedly into issues many teenagers deal with but are unwilling to discuss, such as suicide, cyberbullying, and rape. One of the most interesting things I learned is that a teenager's hippocampus isn't fully developed, which is why they can interpret a negative remark or dirty look as lasting and eternal. It really helps me to have more patience and empathy with my more problematic students as I realize there are plenty of issues beyond the surface that I might not be aware of."
