Re: Interview questions
Future goals? What do you feel to be the strength of your teaching abilities? What do you know about this program? What do you see your role being in this program? What is your idea of what a band director does or should be responsible for every day? How do you feel about driving a school bus? With our daily schedule in band being this (you explain) name some repertoire that you think would be an appropriate fit for your middle school band at contest? What instruments are you extremely comfortable in teaching? What is your favorite instrument? What role do you see yourself playing in a high school band rehearsal? There are so many versions of these questions where you can really dig into the candidates. Of course, you ultimately need to decide the level of intensity of your program. I would think backwards to what I want my assistant to do for the program and have questions that address hard situations where you could see conflict of interest. Good luck.
