I hope your interview went well. Even though the interview
is over, and I am not yet an administrator I think there
are some keys to the interview process.
1. Make sure you have a clear vision of where you would
want to take the school and how you would do it. Try to be
as specific with your vision as possible. Using "eduspeak"
words aren't as impressive.
2. Ask questions about the district you are interviewing in
about some of the issues they are dealing with. Bring up
the issues as this will show you have researched the
3. Explain how you will be an instructional leader. This
is especially true in today's world of teacher evaluations
Again I hope you did well in your interview.
