What are your goals in life?

Sample Answer: My goal is to spend my life teaching! I plan to pursue my M.A. on down the road. I don't see myself as one of those people who will change their career path five times before they finally find something they enjoy. And I'm definitely not someone who constantly has to change what I'm doing in order to stay interested in my job. I absolutely loved student teaching, and have always dreamed of being a teacher! On a personal level, I see myself at some point having a family and basically living the American Dream.

Tip: When hiring a teacher, school districts want to hire individuals that appear to be rooted to the community. This will increase the likelihood that the teacher will teach for many years. Having concrete and rational goals shows that you are this type of person and makes you appealing as a candidate!
