Dear Theo: Weaknesses?

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Helena Handbasket, Mar 22, 2011.

    I have said that I prefer to make my own resources and this means I use a lot of my personal time, however I also consider it a strength as it shows a commitment to my lessons and it helps me to become more engaged with the topic as it increases my knowledge and understanding.

    Oh that is SO last century to ask that!
    And actually a bit nasty too. I am tempted to say: Don't go there. However,
    You could say that your weakness is that despite being very committed, you have been unable to get a job because you cannot move too far for personal reasons. And say that you cannot follow up on this as your family is very important to you, and your commitment to them makes you a better person and thus a better teacher.
    Best of luck!
