With just 6 weeks to go in this academic year, there are still so many things to think about as we make the final stretch to the glorious summer holidays! For teachers in the UK, many have returned from the final half-term break of the year - hopefully refreshed and recharged from their escapades in Spain, Lisbon, Paris, Berlin, the Mediterranean and all over the UK. Besides the heavy burden of marking and finishing projects with students, teachers are also going to job interviews at other schools, making plans to stay at their current schools or becoming acquainted with our new arrivals in London. Some teachers are returning to Canada this summer while bidding farewell to new friends made in London.
Some of our teachers are teaching in Canada, and preparing to teach in the UK in the autumn. Report cards are being finalized while counting down the days to the big move across the pond to London.
From the recruiting end, both here at Classroom Canada and schools across London, we are all on the quest to find more teaching staff for September. Many jobs are in demand and teachers both within London and outside are all carefully scanning the horizon, weighing their options as they search for change or perhaps more long-term positions.
What are you doing about it? Counting down to summer? Counting down to the UK? Or counting down to your return to Canada? Or not counting down at all?
