We have the most amazing teachers ever, and these amazing teachers tell their amazing teacher friends how amazing we are.
It's like one big happy family of teachers from coast to coast who tell their friends to apply to us and skip all the others. Could we be any happier? I don't think so!
So, to celebrate the fact that we don't advertise anymore, nor do we visit the university fairs, and we really only get our teachers from word of mouth, we decided to start giving back.
Here's the letter I sent to all our teachers currently teaching in London, as well as past teachers who have since returned home to Canada:
"I am excited to announce that I will be donating $50 to Free the Children for every teacher you refer to Classroom Canada that ends up teaching with us in London.
With your help, more children around the world will have the opportunity to learn in safe & happy schools.
When your friend arrives in London, be sure to let me know that you were the one to refer them so I can send in the donation. I am so excited to see how much of a difference we can all make!
I am interviewing teachers and teaching assistants for jobs that start in April & May as well as September and October 2010. Please send this to all your friends & colleagues to help spread the word.
They just need to email their CV and cover letter to apply at classroomcanada dot com.
