Are you looking to land your dream teacher job? Let us help you stand out from the crowd! This document is a place to brainstorm, learn and collate all the awesome information you need to score a teaching job, whether you are a brand new teacher or someone who has been teaching for a while.

Like everything in teaching, it pays off when you are prepared and ready for anything that might be thrown your way. That is why we created this guide. It includes loads of information, professional tips, and templates to help you write applications and attend interviews with confidence and ease.
