"The most challenging experience for me in my teaching career was to deal with a parent who was always complaining about the things we did in the classroom. It was difficult as I was new to the school and he wanted his daughter to be in the class of her old teacher which was obviously not possible. I called the parent and sat down with him and talked to him about the issues he had and tried to address them with patience and in the end he understood that his daughter will get new teachers every now and that he should cooperate with the teachers as we are all doing our jobs to the best. He never complained after that and on my last day even sent a bouquet with his daughter."

"I recently watched a Netflix show called 13 Reasons Why which delves deeply and unabashedly into issues many teenagers deal with but are unwilling to discuss, such as suicide, cyberbullying, and rape. One of the most interesting things I learned is that a teenager's hippocampus isn't fully developed, which is why they can interpret a negative remark or dirty look as lasting and eternal. It really helps me to have more patience and empathy with my more problematic students as I realize there are plenty of issues beyond the surface that I might not be aware of."
What is something new that you are recently interested in? Here is a list of things you can talk about: 1) a new hobby or sport you're passionate about 2) a new country or place travelled 3) a new dish you cooked or tried 4) an insightful book or TV show Show the interviewer that you're interesting, and always interested. Make some connections to your teaching and tell them how you've applied or plan to apply what you've learned to reach your students, academically or otherwise.
