Steve Santilli reached out to a few of his PLN family members on Twitter and asked for some interview questions for a leadership position in his school. Here are some that I thought were important to ask...
We are a Google Apps for Education District. Explain what this means and how students and teachers can thrive in this sort of environment?
When you observe a lesson are you looking at how the teacher performs or how the students are making sense of their learning?
Tell me the difference between a class of students that are engaged and on task.
Here at our school status quo is not an option. How do you enhance your ability to lead and grow professionally on a daily basis in the physical and virtual world?
How do connect with students? What initiatives have you been involved with over the years that would speak to this connection?
What is one initiative that you want to get off the ground running with this school year? What is your plan to make this happen?
Tell me what you know about our school and is it related to innovation and putting kids first?
An co-operating teacher comes to you in confidence and says that their partner is not following the curriculum. What are your next steps to address the issue?
Tell me what you know about our state's HIB law. Give me the particulars as it relates to the investigation process. What are the potential outcomes?
