Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

As you know, professional experience and organization is a result of your hard work. Most of that hard work goes unnoticed. A lot of teachers I know forget most of their side- experiences because they go above and beyond and never have any type of accountability to showcase that work. I have developed a tool for you that will assist in both your professional experience and organization. I have put together a set of three different professional development portfolio logs that will keep all that hard work and your volunteering organized and ready for review at a moment’s notice. These logs are a great way to organize your personal and professional experience. For every hour you instruct in the classroom, observe, attend conferences, and/or take advanced education classes, you need to log it down so that you can maintain and validate your personal, professional, and field experiences. These logs can be put together as a quick-reference, cosmetic portfolio binder that you can keep in your classroom or at home. The event sheets contained within these files can be taken with you to any event that will help build to your professional portfolio or resume. These logs provide the organization you need to fulfill any type of professional development event. I have provided several copies of these logs to multiple disciplines and professions already. Teachers, tend to enjoy these logs as they are custom for them. However, these logs can be used in multiple ways through diverse mediums across various professions.

NPQSL Final Assessment Log (2016) with appendices

NPQSL Final Assessment Log (2016) with appendices

After completing my NPQML, I decided to embark on the SL course and what a journey it has been. I have poured my blood, sweat and tears into this document and received some outstanding feedback in regards to both the project and the completed log. A superb course for anyone interested in senior leadership within the education sector. Included in this package comes all 22 pages of the log with all appendices attached. Within the appendices are my 'Project Action Plan', 360 Diagnostic report and SLT and Governors report. All references are also highlighted in the log. Pseudonyms are used for school and individual identities. All I can say is that I wished I had the opportunity to see an example such as this when I was writing as the IOE provide very little in terms of examples. If you do download, please leave feedback :)

Supply teacher daily checklist, class feedback form and some useful websites

Supply teacher daily checklist, class feedback form and some useful websites

This is a three page document drawn up from my own needs. I've tried to price it fairly - it should be something you can adapt. It should save you some time and maybe even some stress. The first page is a simple but thorough checklist to ensure I have all the information I need for a successful day (I've left off the lesson content, which I tackle anyway). I've not currently added any icons but that's the way I wanted it, really straightforward. It's a standard checklist. The second page has some useful websites and last minute ideas for activities (mainly primary but could easily be adapted). The the third page is a feedback form to leave for the class teacher. You might find you want to move the sizing around or change some of the categories. Maybe you want to reduce it onto A5 instead of A4? There 's also a checklist for use when leaving the house at the beginning of the day and the classroom at the end, so you don't end up losing your favourite hat/water bottle/etc... I have this laminated on the back of my DBS folder, and on the back of my phone, which you might want to consider too - you can always reduce the typeface? They are in .docx format so can be manipulated and amended to help you. Good luck and happy supplying. Hope they help! Please email with feedback or leave me some lovely stars...

NPQSL COMBINED TASK 2017 (PASS)  - FULL PROJECT INCLUDING EVIDENCE AND FEEDBACK

NPQSL COMBINED TASK 2017 (PASS) - FULL PROJECT INCLUDING EVIDENCE AND FEEDBACK

This is my completed write-up of my project for my NPQSL. I have also included the sponsor's comments and my additional resources I used as evidence in my project. This provides you with a good example of the balance between how much evidence needs to be written, and the types of evidence you can upload to demonstrate you have successfully met the competencies. At assessment, the sponsor's comments play an equally important part. I have included my sponsor's comments in this document. Updated as of 05/09/17- I have now also included the feedback form from the external assessor. All projects are sent off for a pass/fail assessment, and I passed all of the competencies at first time of asking. Feedback form attached.

Teacher Curriculum Vitae template

Teacher Curriculum Vitae template

Modern, eye catching and creative teacher CV template. I conducted a significant amount of research on how to make the most effective CV for a teacher and would therefore like to share the design template with others. UK schools generally do not require a CV in this modern day, however anyone wishing to teach internationally will know this is a necessity. And, an old, disorganised and unattractive CV may cost you the Head Teacher's attention and consequently gaining an interview. I have left the majority of my own CV content on the template for people to use, edit or generate ideas for themselves to write. ** Two schools in Dubai in 2014 complimented me during my interview regarding how 'eyecatching and modern' my CV was which influenced their decision heavily to offer me an interview. **
