Find out what the philosophy of the school is. For example, some schools
are progressive, team teaching, open classes, etc. Other school are more
conservative. Some schools value the economic-materialistic side of life,
ie, strong science dept, math dept,= good for the economy Other schools are
more humanistic, value and money spent on the arts, theater, etc.= good for
living with others in harmony.
Find out the discipline philosophy, ie, kids need to be punished,
detention, or kids need to be sent to the school psychologist. Then, see
how you fit in. If your thinking should match that of the school you want
to work in. When you figure this out, write a philosophy statement
expressing how you feel about the above items. Administration is usually
not very interested in all that educational philosophy stuff, they want to
weed out misfits and welcome like minds. Sorry, that's the way the world
is...and it really ain't that bad. Good luck!
