ESL job interview question: What are your reasons for wanting to teach in our district?

Recommended answer:

The mission statement of the district matches my philosophy of teaching. I believe that students learn best when they are actively engaged in their own learning in a safe and positive atmosphere that fosters a lifelong love of learning. I would also like to teach in your district b/c as a member of the City community; my daughter will be attending school here, etc., etc., etc. [give a clear reason WHY...]
