Interested in a sample teacher interview? Interested in teacher interview questions and answers? As with most jobs, I had to go through a teaching interview before getting hired as a first year teacher.

In this sample teacher interview, I ask myself 6 questions and include the possible answers. I hope these tips help out any new teacher or future teacher who is going through teaching interviews. I really wish I had videos covering common teacher interview questions to know what to expect!

How to Become a Substitute Teacher in California
 
04:40
Ever consider teaching but you weren't sure if it was for you? Today I wanted to share with you how to become a substitute teacher. This is a great way to make some extra money without having to plan a lot. Sometimes you will have to teach a lesson depending on the grade level, but the upper grades can usually do independent work without much assistance. This is a great way to get exposed to teaching, and many schools hire full-time teachers from their sub lists. I highly suggest if your time allows it, to do all the necessary steps in becoming a teacher! Here are some helpful links to websites where schools post sub openings.

How to Better Organize Your Classroom | Paperflow

Here is how to better organize your classroom and figure out where to put all of your paperwork in the classroom. Classroom management also deals with a ton of organizing! Here's a few helpful tips in organizing your classroom and figuring out where to put ALL THOSE darn assignments! One of the things I learned while getting my Master's was what to do with paper flow in the classroom. Kids and even myself can lose homework, worksheets, and assignments easily. It would be unfortunate if I lost an assignment and would have to go through all the trouble that comes along with it. Therefore, there needs to be a special spot for everything in the classroom, and I've been practicing reinforcing this routine with my students. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Decorating My Very First Flexible Seating Classroom
 
07:06
Here is a tour of my first classroom! This tour is full of flexible seating options and classroom decor. This school year I'm going to be using flexible seating in my 5th grade classroom. Summer is almost over and I'm going to be a 5th grade teacher :) This video will feature the product of my classroom decorations and overall look of my classroom including the flexible seating. After hours and hours of work (which involved cutting, gluing, and a ton of pinterest) I am happy to say I am finally 75% done! It was definitely a struggle to start with literally nothing and come up with something on a budget! Flexible Seating gives students the ability to have choice, move around to find an area they believe will benefit their learning capabilities, and prevents students from shoving work into their desks! I also feature my GROOT tree as well as the EASIEST bulletin board design that will save me time from stapling a thousand papers to the walls :) Please let me know if you have any questions!

Getting Evicted From My Home Twice | Financial Journey
 
06:52
I hit rock bottom when I was evicted TWICE from my home. An eviction notice is not something I would have ever imagined receiving. However, I'm here to motivate you that you can OVERCOME FINANCIAL STRUGGLES. Have a comfortable seat as I tell you my family's financial journey/homeless process and how we barely made it through. Up until I was 16 years old, my family was very wealthy, so I honestly never thought this could happen. Let alone twice. Thank God for friendships and a supportive community. Although my adult life was mixed in with my parents' financial choices, I am so thankful God taught me a HUGE lesson on being financially wise. Now that I am living on my own, I know how to overcome financial struggles while being in a state where I can help my parents, too :). Living with financial instability is difficult and can literally suck the life out of you if you feel unsupported. It’s also hard when you feel like there’s NOTHING more you can do to alleviate the situation. Thankfully, that’s the perfect spot for God to show us He is in full control (but also, to get financially fit and set healthy boundaries). I hope this helps someone know that they are not alone :) it’s not the end of the world and you WILL survive! Follow me!

My fifth graders have a lot of energy, and I try to engage with them as much as possible. Wearing comfortable clothes means I can look professional and not sacrifice comfort! I hope these teacher outfit ideas help and this teacher clothing haul will give you some ideas on what to wear to school! Follow me!

04:17
Here are 5 different ways I use collagen peptides and get the best results for your body. I use Vital Proteins collagen, the only collagen I use. With these easy breakfast recipes, I show you my favorite ways to eat more collagen in my diet. This isn't a collagen peptides review, as I already love the benefits of collagen. The benefits of collagen are as follows: acts as a collagen protein powder, joint health, tendon & bone strength, healthy cartilage, beautiful skin, gut health, and has actually made my hair and nails grow faster.

CBEST Math Test Prep | Part 1
 
12:12
A CBEST math practice test overview to help you pass the test! The practice exam includes an answer key, but they don’t explain their answers. I figured I could share my practice test answers, while also giving some exam prep tips. Hopefully, in your own test preparation, you'll find this sample test video helpful to feel more comfortable about the test. The CBEST was one of the first tests I took toward my career as a teacher, and most schools require it before you become a substitute teacher. I will go over problems 1-15 in this video, and then will do a part 2 another time (depending on how you all like this video)! All of this preparation was a part of the teacher journey, and in my opinion, the CBEST is not as bad as…the…CSET! CBEST 101: -You are given 4 hours -It costs $41 unless you want to take it on a computer — then you add $61 -50 Reading Questions -50 Math Questions -2 Writing prompts You can find the practice exam I used here: https://www.ctcexams.nesinc.com/content/docs/CBEST_OPT_Math.pdf Follow me! I’m always open to questions :) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mayaleex3/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/mayaleex3 Music Creds: Together by ikson: http://www.soundcloud.com/ikson Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/SHao5nTg8R4

A Day In The Life of A First Year Teacher - Open House
 
04:52
Check out how I set up open house night as first year teacher. A day in the life of a first year teacher involves a whole lot of learning. This week I prepared for my first ever Open House. As a first year teacher, I really didn't know what to expect. I knew I wanted my room to have projects hanging everywhere, so I thought of this cool school open house idea! This was a fun math project for my students to try! Here is another day in the life of being a math teacher/first year teacher and how my fifth grade classroom is :). If you would like to try milk&eggs, you can use code "MAYALEE" & get $20 off $40! I honestly order from them every week, and I know my parents will love all the snacks for Open House! Follow me!

A Day in the Life of a First Year Teacher: Testing Season
 
04:22
Here is another day in the life of a first year teacher vlog where I prepare my students for ERB testing. Testing season is tricky because I have to adjust my curriculum and prepare my students efficiently! Different from state testing, the ERBs help place our students when they go to middle school, as do the ISEE tests. As a first year teacher, I've had to figure out how ERB testing works and how to prepare for ERB tests. I hope this day in the life of a teacher video helps you as well :) I also do a quick target run for my kiddos! Follow me!

Being a young elementary school teacher has its pros and cons! I love the fact that as a young teacher I can connect with my students all the time, but there have definitely been moments where I thought being a younger elementary school teacher made it harder for me.

Instead of a day in the life of a teacher, here’s a day in the life of a Columbia student! Follow me around as I (momentarily) return back to student life and all of its glory. Although I graduated 4 years ago, it was amazing to attend the Teachers College at Columbia University. I spent most of my days learning from Lucy Calkins and how to implement her writing workshop.

Why I Prefer Teaching Upper Elementary
 
06:09
A lot of people have asked me why I love teaching upper elementary. I honestly prefer teaching upper elementary because teaching older kids allows me to connect with them quite deeply. I think lower elementary students are the CUTEST and I really thought I'd be a 2nd grade teacher. When I got hired as a 5th grade teacher, I didn't know what to expect...but now I know teaching the older kids has a special place in my heart! Follow me!

7 On The Go Snacks to Buy at CostCo | Shop With Me
 
03:03
I move quickly and need on the go snacks all the time. Shop with me as I share a few ideas of 7 good and healthy things to buy at Costco. I like to supplement my grocery shopping at Costco and buy tons of snacks that I can use in between breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Healthy snacks are essential in my teacher meal prep because I want to be able to grab and go! Once I find healthy snacks, I make it a staple in my home. Another added benefit of shopping at Costco is that things come in bulk. I can make less visits to the store and just continue and enjoy my on the go snacks. Follow me!

Reflections of a First Year Teacher
 
06:58
Before I start my second year of teaching, I took the time to reflect on my first year of teaching and what mistakes I made as a first year teacher. Not only do I talk about classroom management ideas that could have gone better, but how I can learn from being a first year teacher. These teacher reflections came from the blog https://www.cultofpedagogy.com/gut-level-reflection-questions/ and definitely helped me channel my thoughts and feelings about my first year of teaching. This definitely can apply to ANY teacher reflection. Follow me!
