Well, this is really going to depend on what position and grade level (elementary, middle, high) you are interviewing for. Are you a recent graduate? I would ask your advisers and career counselor at the college you attend(ed). When I went through the education program we did mock interviews and one class was specifically about creating a teacher resume, do interviews, etc. You most valuable resource for this will be your college.

Mrs_Prissy, many states offer alternative certification for people who already hold bachelor degrees or higher.
Answer by JeremysMom at 5:53 PM on Feb. 14, 2013
No, at least not in my state. In Georgia, let's say you have a degree in Biology and the schools are short on teachers who hold education/biology certification. They can hire you as a teacher but you will not get the same pay as a teacher (about $2,000-$3,000 less). During your first year of teaching, you will take education classes on the pedagogy of teaching, classroom management, etc. You will also be observed several times during that year. Once you have finished all of the classes, received satisfactory observations, and passed the GACE exam, then you will be given a teaching certification.

Do you know what position you are interviewing for?

They will probably want to know the extent of your knowledge is the grade & subject area you are interviewing for. Familiarity with the current curriculum & your classroom management skills. GL
