Teaching as a Profession

posted by .

I must conduct an interview with someone in the teaching profession for an assignment that is due a week from today. I would do the interview locally however, I take classes online and all local schools are out for summer. Luckily it is permitted to conduct the interview online. I was wondering if anyone in the teaching profession might be willing to take part in a short interview? If you are interested please respond. I have included the questions below.
1)What are some examples of typical, quick decisions teachers make on a daily basis?
2)What were the five most difficult school-related decisions you made this week (or most recent week of school)? What made them difficult?
3)What was the affect of those decisions on the classroom environment? Were the decisions effective?
I am supposed to provide two additional questions that I create myself, but I think it will be easier to develop those questions once I know the answers to the questions posted above. Thank you all for your time.

    I'm sorry -- I'd like to answer your interview questions, but I retired from classroom teaching 15 years ago. (Yikes! Has it been that long?)

    Most of the Jiskha teachers are retired -- but keep checking back -- someone may respond.

    I am also retired. However, you might want to be more specific as to what level of teaching you want to explore — lower el, upper el, middle school, high school or college (my level). The decisions that need to be made will vary with the level.
