From all of us here at Classroom Canada, I would like to wish all our teachers at home and in London - as well as all our readers from around the world - a fantastic New Year's! 2015 is off to a great start. The winter holidays are winding down this weekend and most teachers are returning to their schools to start the next semester of the campaign, hopefully recharged and rejuvenated. Naturally, lesson plans start creeping up at the back of our minds, as well as Monday's first class back, expectations for the new year and so forth.
However, there are also many teachers who have not started their teaching careers just yet. Of course, I am referring to the many pupils who are beginning their final semester at teachers colleges all over Canada. From the west coast to the east, universities are filled with future teachers who will be beginning their practicum placements in schools close to their home cities. Many will be getting their first taste of in-class experience. Afterwards, they will begin their long-awaited job search. Perhaps in Canadian schools in every province. And some might even choose to go international schools right away, relishing the chance to teach abroad.
With the arrival of January also comes the plethora of university job fairs that I very much look forward to going to! Here is a chance for all those teachers in waiting to meet and greet many of the international and London agencies that are looking to recruit the great talent that will be graduating this spring. Classroom Canada is no different. I very much look forward to meeting the countless future teachers who will be attending the fairs. Make sure you drop by our table, say hello, and we'll have a brief chat. I will be there to tell you a little bit more about what we do and offer at Classroom Canada, get to know you a little better and, of course, answer any and all questions you may have!
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend all the fairs, so if your university is not on the list below, please do e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or me personally at email@example.com and we can chat more about living and teaching in London, England in 2015.
2015 Education Job Fairs Classroom Canada will be attending:
January 9th - Brock University
January 10th - York University
