I would ask them questions about classroom management. This is an area that can make or break a teacher. Especially if they are a new teacher

Usually, they have questions for you to ask. Most districts ask the same questions of each candidate to get a feel for how they each respond to the same situations. I like behavioral questions. One is "How many tennis balls can fit into a limousine?" The answer is that you really can't tell because you don't know the size of the limo, what is in the limo already, or the volume of the tennis ball. But, once you know those things and have a chance to do some calculating, you'd be happy to get back with me. If it's a seasoned teacher, I'd ask what the weirdest thing a student ever said in their classroom was. (You can tell a lot by the weird things that are said in the classroom, and also about what the candidate thinks is "weird".) If it's a new teacher, I'd ask a situational question--what would you do if Johnny brought his pet frog to school...? for example.

I'd ask "what is your teaching philosophy?" "what makes a good teacher?" "what makes a bad teacher?"

Do you love kids?

If possible, ask what they do in their spare time, how they deal with personal stress. Tells you more than you think about them as a person

My district uses a set of standard questions. I always ask how to pronounce their names, tho, since names are important (& our principal has gotten it wrong before 😬).

Explain how you think classroom management changes the environment of the classroom?
