We will be hosting a Central Region Mock Proficiency Interview on Monday, April 15th at Veterans High School to help prepare the proficiency finalist for their state interview.  The interviews will begin at 4:00 and we will go in the order that you arrive.  Please plan on your proficiency finalist attending.  A meal will be provided for the finalist and the advisor.

We will cover all aspects of the proficiency interviews.  
  • Candidates will need to prepare a ONE minute opener that introduces themselves and their SAE. It is best that they have this somewhat memorized. 
  • After presenting their opener - All candidates will go through a 5 minute interview - The important thing about the interview is they give good thought provoked answers to the questions, they explain themselves well and don't give short quick answers.  
  • The judges will give feedback to each finalist after each interview to help them get ready for their state interview.   
  • Students should bring a copy of their proficiency application with them to the interview

Please let me know in advance if your proficiency finalist will be attending the mock interview session so I can prepare enough material and have enough food.  If you have other questions please let me know.
