responses, but a thoughtful plan-of-action, written by two highly-qualified educators who

experience, the authors are able to offer a glimpse into the interviewers psyche
helping you prepare not just good responses, but an understanding of what he/she is
looking for. They also walk you through the interview process, including potential pitfalls
as well as opportunities to shine. Areas covered include: personal philosophy, dealing
with parents, leadership style, student engagement, special-needs students and dealing
