I'm so excited to FINALLY start these posts....I didn't know if I would have a guest blogger or not (if you want to sign up click "First Year Friday Form" at the top!!!! I would love it!)
Well the authors of this website contacted me about their FANTASTIC site. I decided to check it out and was literally shocked.
For me.....this was the JACKPOT!
Welcome to EDU Edge : Insider's Edge for Landing a Teaching Postion!!
We have all come across tons :( of interview questions and tips but this is written by adminstrators and principals...what a better place to get advice than from them?!
The blog part contains tips on stuff so relavant to me it's scary:
- To do/ do not list for student teacher
- should you approach principal for observation?
- What about accepting aide/assitant jobs?
- What can you do as a sub to get a job the following year?
- Process and Timeline for hiring
- Public vs. Private Schools
the list could go on and on....
Sadly, I may have already broken a few of the rules but after reading- they make so much sense! Any teacher looking to apply again should check out their website!
You can even submit questions (which I did) to get specific answers.
What a fabulous resource for up and coming teachers as well as veterans written from people who want to help and share the information....making it a lot less scary, in my opinon.
Are you reapplying or changing schools? Would this information help you?
