New teachers are entering the classroom thanks to Finders Teachers. Already, schools across the country have begun yet another school year, and while districts wished many of their retirees farewell, they hired new teachers to replace them. Whether those hired came by traditional means, employment agencies or through Finders Teachers, we wish all new teachers the best for a prosperous and successful school year!
Since our launch in February, over 25 districts and 300 teachers from 13 states have created profiles, and with that we have narrowed the nationwide school of applicants and made accessing them much easier. As a result, states such as Florida and Hawaii – both in dire need of teachers – have a greater chance of recruiting that new educator, whether that person hails from across town or across the country.
Created by educators, our mission is to put teachers in classrooms. Districts enter the search criteria they’re looking for in a teacher and a list of matching candidates is returned in seconds. From there, districts can instantly contact a prospective teacher and begin the interview process, thereby making the hiring of a prospective teacher faster, easier and more convenient for all involved – and that benefits everyone.
To date, Finders Teachers has grown beyond our expectations. While we started in the northeast, we have been well received in Florida, and this fall we look forward to expanding to the greater Chicago area to introduce our new way of hiring teachers to their wealth of colleges, universities and school districts.
We are on our way to providing schools and districts with a nationwide pool of applicants, but for now, as another school year begins Finders Teachers joins Frontline Education, TalenEd and all the other employment agencies in welcoming those teachers we helped place in the classroom to what will be their most exciting and fulfilling job – teaching.
Congratulations, and we’ll see you in class!
