The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I'd like to delve into the interviewing process with this question. I'd love to get a template or set of questions/actions that we could take to insure that we hire the right people to work in this school. To that end....

Imagine you are interviewing prospective teachers for our school:

What skills do they need to have?
In an interview, how could they SHOW us that they have mastered these skills?
What questions should we ask?

Please let me know some answers to these questions. They'll go a long way towards helping us get the right people into this school!

what insight they have gained from them (ie: if twitter - who they follow the most)
what insight they have shared... (ie: fav posts they have written)

And then how they plan to share/implement this whole networking idea into "school."

My fav "skill" - comes from Erica Mcw\Williams incredible article - Unlearning How to Teach ...where she pens it.. useful ignorance... knowing what to do when you don't know what to do.
