Education must always be placed among the important basic things to be considered by the citizens of every country in this world. Without education we will never be able to evolve in any way. It is important for every child in this world to have access to education, to be taken to school by his/her parents, to be made aware of the necessity of going to school and of receiving proper education. Teachers should be aware of the great job that they are supposed to do because it is an essential job in every society. Teachers should be persons interested in good education, in being aware of their responsibilities at school every day and in actually being interested in educating every child that they encounter in their day-to-day job.
There are numerous aspects which could be considered when discussing about teaching and about the great role that teachers have in our lives or that they should have. One of these aspects refers to the first interview of a person as a teacher. All of those working in this field of activity understand just how important it is to take into account some basic information related to the way in which a first 'teacher interview' should take place.
Certainly, there are numerous aspects which are common in this respect with the ones that have to be taken into account when preparing for any interview or for jobs from any field of activity. But, it is also true that each job position also requires certain specific characteristics and aspects to be considered when preparing for the interview.
Dressing appropriate is the first thing that any person should do before presenting him/herself for a teacher interview. First impression is always very important. A professional look must be adopted; because the impression that you will create on both your colleagues and students in your first day at work is very important. This impression will last long and will be helpful in creating a good rapport between the teacher and his students and colleagues as well.
The second very significant aspect that should be taken into account when preparing for a teacher interview is the speech. (First of all, it is very important to prepare a speech because even if improvising might seem a good idea at some point it is always a better idea to prepare for an interview of this kind.) You might be asked to deliver a speech on any subject. So look for subjects that are relevant to your field or some general topics. Remember that a speech replete with bombastic words will fail to create any good effect on the minds of the listeners (interviewers and students). So it is better to use simple words and thought-provoking concepts.
It is his/her portfolio which will reflect the image of the person as a teacher, i.e. how he/she will be regarded as a teacher in future. It is essential for any future teacher to have a person portfolio of his/her work because this is what actually makes him/her a teacher.
Previous experience in working with children as well as all sorts of research papers having been written (by you) and all sorts of projects in which you might have got involved in are essential to be included in one's portfolio. They will all prove that the person presenting for the teacher interview is someone who has the necessary knowledge and skills in dealing with future job requirements.
Technological skills are important to be considered by students preparing to become future teachers as well because there will be numerous situations in which they will have to make use of such skills in their future job. It is always very good for a teacher to present to an interview the proof of some sorts of at least basic technological skills that he/she possesses and that might enable the person to deal with all of the job requirements of this kind.
All of these aspects along with others that can be considered as well should be taken into account by any person preparing for a future teacher interview because in such cases every little detail matters.
