Has anyone been on an interview for a gifted and talented or enrichment teacher position? If so, what kinds of questions did they ask you? Thanks!

I interviewed at the Middle School level ... for a Language Arts Class for GT. I interviewed with the Principal and the Director of GT.

Here's what I remember:

1. What is your definition of Gifted and Talented?
2. Do you think all GT students are good at academics? Explain
3. What do you think GT students need the most...challenging & enriching learning environments or a teacher who understands that they're truly different? (I answered that they need BOTH)
4. How would you differientiate an average lesson to gear it toward a Gifted Learner?
5. Have you had any experience in screening for GT?
6. Do you feel districts in Texas try to identify students too early for GT?
7. How would you handle a parent who thought that their child shouldn't ever get an answer marked wrong on a paper/assignment?
8. Do inquisitive/argumentative students bother you? If so, explain how you would handle this situation.
9. Would you be willing to attend GT workshops to improve/fine-tune your GT classroom environment?
10. How important is Writing in your GT classroom?
11. Do you think rote memorization is effective in the GT classroom?
12. How is a GT student different from the average student (not including grades/academics)?

My interview lasted almost an hour, but that's as much as I can remember.

I'm no longer teaching GT, but I did enjoy it!

I hope that helps.

Good Luck!
