    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!
