Interview for 5th grade math position

I have an interview for a 5th grade math position tomorrow that I really want. If you are a 5th grade teacher now and you were able to be on a panel to ask questions, what would you ask? What questions have you experienced in your own interviews? I have had practicums in 1st, 5th, and 6th grades and then taught 1st grade. Please give me any tips and advice you have.

BTW, the four 5th grade teachers are the ones that I will be interviewing with, then I will go visit the principal. I think that it's great that they get to do this, but it makes me a little more nervous than if it was just the principal.

These are the questions I would ask a potential new teammate:

How will you differentiate to meet the wide range of needs in your classroom?
What strategies will you use to increase higher-level thinking and problem solving?
How do you use assessment to guide your instruction?

Good luck!

As a teacher thinking of working with you, I'd ask how you like to work. Do you prefer to collaborate as a team or do you like to do your own thing? How would you handle a disagreement with a coworker? What are you expectations of students?

I would also expect to be asked something about:
Classroom management
Parent contact
Use of data to drive instruction (especially if 5th grade math is a testing grade in your state as it is in mine)

How will you incorporate goal setting?

What is the role of the classroom teacher? Including classroom management.

How will you incorporate daily problem solving?
