I try to cut teachers and teaching assistants a lot of slack when they apply for jobs with Classroom Canada in London. If their cover letter is written to "Timeplan" by mistake, I understand that they're just applying to loads of teaching jobs in the UK, and are in too much of a hurry to stop and see who they are applying to.
Sometimes, I get a little bit cranky though. Hey, I'm a positive person - this doesn't happen too often, but lately...well...spell check is important folks. It's actually really important for teachers.
Here are my personal favourite mistakes from this week's applications alone:
- email subject heading: Teacing Application
- Resume/CV education section: Batchelor of Education
- Dear Timeplan
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
