ESL job interview question: The parents in this classroom are very comfortable with the current teacher. Some of them are going to have difficulty with this transition. How will you handle those situations?

Recommended answer:

I would call the parents before the start of school to introduce myself, invite them to observe in my classroom, and address any stressors they had about the transition head-on. I've been in that situation before, and told them so; at my last school, some kids had had the same teacher since they were three before I came along. (They were between eleven and thirteen, so that's a long time!)
