I would like some ideas of questions to ask when I'm being interviewed, you know, at then end when they ask if I have any questions.

I have a 4th grade interview coming up this week!!

questions that I was generally interested in about the school.

I interviewed early in the spring for a job starting in the Fall, so I asked what sort of connection would I have with the staff/admin until school started.

What sort of professional development/staff meetings are available?

I asked about class size and number of team teachers, extra curricular duties, type of curriculum used, that sort of thing.

I found that if my questions were genuine and specific to the school, they came out better than if I just had some questions planned.

Good luck on your interview!!

Good Luck on your interview!!
I always ask them to share what they are most proud of at the school, What challenges the school has, what is the parent involvement with the school.

Again, good luck with the interview!!

I ask:
1) what the rti process is
2) what they're most proud of in their building
3) if there's common plan time for grade levels

I like to ask what would a teacher say is their favorite aspect of the school and what is a staff goal for the next year.
