Local Principals Conduct Mock Interviews for Boise State Teacher Candidates

Boise State teacher candidates participated in practice interviews with local school administrators at the Student Union Building on November 18th. The seminar provided candidates with real-world interview experience and advice from future employers.

Administrators from Boise, Caldwell, Castleford, Kuna, Nampa, Vallivue, West Ada school districts, as well as local charter schools, volunteered their time to conduct mock interviews and give advice to teacher candidates graduating this semester.

Real-World Practice

Teacher candidates on track to graduate next month received advice from future employers about the application, hiring and interviewing processes. The candidates provided administrators with their prepared education resumes, and engaged in multiple rounds of group interviews with principals and district officials.

Boise State’s teacher education programs thank the following building administrators and district personnel for volunteering their time to support our teacher education candidates:
