A recent entry asked about the type of questions to expect in an AP interview. You can expect questions around:

- curriculum expertise, be able to discuss your teaching success, especially at the grade level of the school you are applying to (i.e. elementary, middle or high school)
- leadership training and experience, be able to discuss leadership experience even as a teacher
- your vision for the school, what type of culture you would promote
- your commitment to the success for all students through your work with staff

Your first administrative position will be the most difficult to obtain. Keep the faith and keep applying.
