So, I taught in London for three years, which is a year longer than the average Canadian teacher stays. I also recruited teachers from across Canada. (To read more about how this came about, please read this post). My job was to find the best teachers and place them into schools as supply teachers and as regular class teachers. With Classroom Canada, I am fortunate to specialize in helping Canadian teachers, and as a fellow Canuck, that just makes sense to me.
They tend to ask the same questions. Where do the Canadian teachers live? Do they go alone? What do they do on the weekends? Where do they travel to? What teaching jobs do they get? How long do they stay? What do they enjoy most? What is the worst part?
We put our heads together and realized that there must be many more Canadian teachers who want to know more about our adventurous, creative, adaptable and fantabulous teachers as well. And what better way to show them than through interviews with our teachers?
So, here is our first interview with one of our teachers. If you'd like to read more of these, please sign up for our newsletters.
