...
"Sometimes candidates can talk a long time without answering the question," Redding says. "Even though you might be nervous, take your time."
10. Be ready to describe your ideal classroom. When you do a "virtual tour" of a classroom where you'd love to teach, make sure you mention that you'll have classroom rules posted, both the school's and some of your own.

Make sure your resume is professional in appearance [have a friend or colleague read it!]. Online programs offer suggestions as to format and content. Redding adds: "This piece of paper is your first contact with the school district.
...
Although what you say is most important, as Redding says, "If the position is a close call between two candidates, your clothing is noticed."
...
Redding suggests including "information about your educational philosophy, sample lesson plans, your cooperating teacher's observations of your student teaching experiences, college transcript, music you arranged, programs of your performances, state police background check, etc. One candidate even included his TB results."
Redding also advises, "Check the school district's website to see their current philosophy and teaching practices. We are currently focusing on LFS (Learning Focus Schools), and it helps if candidates have a knowledge of what that is and how to implement it in their lessons."
