  4. I find the virtual fairs to be a waste of time. Live and in person is best but that is not going to happen this year. We have to do the best we can in these very unique times. What I hope doesn't happen is that all of these fairs continue to be a waste of time for everyone. If schools are not looking, stop posting. Schrole posted tons of jobs in the past few days but no replies. Is it not respectful to at least offer a letter of acknowledgement?
  5. My wife and I both interviewed with no success. We had great interviews but the schools just seem to be seeing what is out there. For us it is a total waste of time and I hope the other virtual fairs are not the same. The schools were all willing to interview but not really committing to anything. It was disappointing and I reached out to our Search Associate and he said he knew we were not the only ones in the same boat.
  6. I am interested if anyone went to this. How was it for them? Was it productive? Offers given or taken?
  7. Hey, people. My name is Ben, and I have been abroad twelve years as a teacher. I have had an amazing experience, albeit riddled with moments of profound desperation, humour, and more memorably, cultural differences. I know you have all had the same experience, and I am sure you would love the world to know! I want to collect stories from international teachers all over the world. The stories are going to be for a book: think Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul, but these stories are not going to be sugar coated, uplifting, epithets of positivity; I want these stories to show

  12. Is anyone else loving Google Jamboard? Google Jamboard is a tool that can be used to support learning in fully online and/or a personalized pedagogical approach. One could model this for teachers by having them use Jamboard at your first staff meeting of the new year. Just asking them something simple like, "add your name to the first slide to show you are present at the meeting." At the end of the meeting, you could ask them to list one thing they learned at the meeting on another slide. For students, I would use this with my ELA class and instead of having a drawing board, I

I'd suggest you reach out to a few of the agencies like Search Associates and put a profile up there.
