HR for Principals: Interviewing & Hiring Part III

This will be the final and shortest post in my series on interviewing and hiring teachers.

The most important question you can ask a candidate during the interview process is, "Do you like children? Do you see yourself liking children in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?" Teaching can be tough - it must all start and end with the kids.

I've run across too many teachers over the years, even first year teachers, who couldn't answer that question in the affirmative.  I know they wouldn't dare interview at your school but better to be safe then sorry!
