When on interview panels, here is one I ask: Which character from “Wizard of Oz” or “Winnie the Pooh” is most like you and why? The answer is always interesting, however I want to see how the candidate reacts and how quickly they respond to a surprising situation in a public setting....just like what happens in a classroom.

I was asked, "If you were one of your students, what would you say about you?" It took me a second to reflect on my teaching style and to formulate an answer, but I finally said something like, "I would say that I have good classroom management skills and that I use all of the class time for class work. I would say that I am kind, compassionate and generous, but disciplined and fair."
