ESL job interview question: Why would we hire you over another candidate?

Recommended answer:

As a relatively new teacher, I can bring a freshness into my teaching. I am enthusiastic about my work, have many new ideas to try and am not set in a specific teaching style. I am open to trying new things, have a great grip on new technology and have the desire to utilize it in my classroom. However, I am not fresh out of college; I do have four solid years of substituting under my belt. I know the teachers here, the kids here, I understand what goes on in a school, and in particular, how things are done here.
