I have a few ideas as to why this might be the case:
- Teachers across Canada and the USA realize in late September and early October that they might as well apply to teach in the UK since they still don't have work "back home." Not the best reason to apply, but I get it.
- Teachers arrive in London with other agencies and realize that the agency they picked doesn't have enough work to go around (This is particularly the case for Secondary School Teachers this year, and a blog post will follow to explain this more), so they apply to teach with us because they've heard great things and/or read this blog.
- Teachers panic. They apply everywhere and anywhere. When I call them, I have to remind them what they've applied for. It makes me giggle inside. It really does. "Oh London? England? Oh! Uhhh....okay, sure!"
- Teachers read this blog and after doing heaps and heaps of research and looking internally to see if they're ready for the big move to the UK, they finally just click "send" on that email they've been working on for weeks (or even months!). These are my favourites of course.
So, I am back to blogging and will post every Mon/Wed/Fri as usual, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays on my Moving to the UK blog. Please share your comments, questions, thoughts, concerns in the comments box below!
