A recent report from the Research Alliance for New York City Schools at NYU examined the relationship between teacher retention, school climate, and student achievement. Here’s a breakdown of how these three important factors can influence one another.
It’s teacher appreciation week and thousands of students, parents, and community members are thanking educators for making a difference in their lives.
Teachers work tirelessly to deliver instruction and help every student succeed. They understand the importance of objective-driven lesson plans, differentiated learning, checking for mastery etc. However, many school districts struggle to uphold the same standards for effective professional development for teachers. One of the best ways we can show appreciation for our teachers is to listen to their needs, respect their time, and most of all, support them in the classroom by delivering meaningful professional development.
When a first-of-its-kind technology or tool becomes available, there’s a lot of excitement and eagerness to learn more. There are often many questions that naturally arise. For example, when people started using online search engines like Google, many wondered, “How does Google know what websites to list in the search results? How do I know if I can trust the results?” It’s important to people that new technology has a sense of transparency, credibility, and integrity.
The TeacherMatch Educator’s Professional Inventory (EPI®) is a revolutionary, data-driven hiring tool that helps school districts identify, hire, and develop the most effective educators. As with any cutting-edge technology, many people have questions about how the TeacherMatch EPI works and how it can benefit school districts.
Every day, school districts face the challenge of ensuring there is a high-quality teacher in every classroom. From last-minute illnesses, to professional development and vacation time, substitute placement coordinators are constantly trying to fill vacancies across multiple schools and dozens of classrooms.
When time is of the essence, and quality matters, it’s extremely important that the processes in place are as efficient and as effective as possible. This is where substitute placement software enters the equation – and where the technology behind the software really makes a difference.
While there are a number of substitute placement software and services on the market, school districts need to focus on the technology that will have the greatest impact on placing high-quality substitutes in the classroom faster.
Intel is well known for their processors, however the innovative technology company is constantly expanding smart technology to make exciting experiences possible for everyone. Their dedication to evolving technology, user experience, and education makes Intel a perfect partner for TeacherMatch.
Here’s a glimpse into the ongoing relationship between the two revolutionary tech organizations:
As former educators, principals, and school leaders, the TeacherMatch® founders understand that there’s an art to hiring high-quality teachers. Principals and teacher teams have a strong understanding of the unique needs in their school. They have insight into the school climate and challenges as well as the characteristics of their teaching staff and student population. These insights allow teacher teams and principals to make informed judgments in the interview process based on observations and knowledge. They may lead to statements like, “I feel like she’d be a great addition to our team” or “I feel that the students would really respond to his personality.”
Hiring quality employees can be a challenging task for any organization, but when it comes to teacher recruitment, the stakes are even higher. Hiring high-quality teachers gives students the best chance to succeed, while low-quality hires can jeopardize student growth. Fortunately, researchers have been studying the processes, factors, and outcomes of teacher recruitment for decades. Here are some of the most fascinating stats on teacher recruitment to consider in the hiring process.
As school districts across the country are facing tighter budgets and teacher shortages, the time has come to try new strategies to recruit more quality teachers. School district networks consist of teachers, employees, students, parents, community members and more. This network offers unique opportunities to promote job openings and grow your candidate pool.
Online job postings are often your district’s first impression to job seekers and potential employees. Chances are, your next great teacher is searching for a job online. A study conducted by CareerBuilder found that 75 percent of job seekers in the education industry start with a Google search.
With hundreds of thousands of teaching job postings on the internet, how are you going to make yours standout? In today’s tight labor market, it’s time to go beyond the basic job responsibilities, requirements, and qualifications.
Here are three things to include for making your district job posting stand out!
