So, the school year is about to begin and I'm still without a teaching job for the fall (I work in Marketing and I'm trying to go through an Alternative Certification program). Suddenly on Thursday I got a call from a school in a more rural area- wanting to interview me on Monday! I'm working on the normal stuff like thinking about interview questions- Please wish me luck! The interview is on the 9th and classes start the 19th, so if I get it, things would happen very quickly!
Did you bring any kind of portfolio with you to interviews? What did you include in it?
I made one before my last interview and it included my resume, teaching philosophy, samples of my art work- ceramics, photography, jewelry, and marketing- but it feels like I should add more. I was thinking of adding sample lesson plans. Any other ideas?
Also, this is kind of a thinking ahead question- but what do you wear to teach in? I know in some of the books I've read they talk about wearing their "power suit" for teaching normal subject- but for Art, especially with younger kids- that's very hard! What kind of things do you end up wearing ?
