What are your go to questions to ask the schools that you are interviewing at?

Why is the position open? How often is this position open? What is the department like? Is the school fully staffed? Is the school fully state funded or what amount is supported by local taxes? Am I able to choose my own textbook and order resources? How strong is the union here, and why? (I don’t want to teach in a place with a strong union based on personal experience.) (Then I fiddle around with finding out if the principal will let me handle my own class or try to get me to write referrals.) I ask zero compensation or benefits questions. Why bother?

What does technology look like on your campus? What is your campus culture? How involved would you say parents are?

I always ask what the principals expectations are? How does the team or department work together? What are outside of contract hour expectations? (Helpful if you have kids.) What resources/curriculum does that school/grade level use? Also, I look at the school website to get a feel for questions and so I can be more informed in my interview. And I never say I want move there because it is close to my house. So looking at the website will help you think of reasons you are interested in working there. Good luck!

What's the average class size? What programs does the school have in place to support students with disabilities? How does the school promote inclusivity? What technology is provided for teachers and students? In what ways are teachers offered support in and outside of the classroom? Do they offer opportunities for teachers looking to continue their own education? (If that is something you are looking to do)

I always ask what my grade team expectations are of me.

I always ask if I can tour the facility. I also find something on the school's state report card that I can ask about.

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.
