Your Money Matters: Tips for finding a teaching job

Tips:

Form a relationship with the local principal. Often, the principal, not HR makes the recommendation to hire. Volunteering or substituting is a great way for them to get to know you.

List experience with kids. For example, coaching soccer, leading a cub scout group or reading at the local library will make you stand out as someone who works well with kids.

Use only professional references (supervisors or professors). Peer references are generally frowned upon.

Watch your punctuation and writing! The old adage of “you only get one first impression” can’t be more true. Remember that filling out an online application is a professional activity.
