  • Aside from teaching, what other types of opportunities in schools can EA connect me to?"

When circumstances were such that I found myself suddenly unemployed midyear, I immediately turned to Educator's Ally for help. My Placement Manager took the time to not only fully understand my experience and skills, but also to truly grasp the type of school and position I was looking for. Unlike other agencies that send any opening your way, my EA Placement Manager was strategic and deliberate in the openings she discussed with me. She also helped me craft my resume and cover letter to best position myself for each individual opportunity and she was a true ally through the entire search process. Thanks to EA, I have accepted a new position which I know is going to be a great fit for me and for the school. My Placement Manager's attention to detail and concerns for the needs of the school and my qualifications as a candidate made this process as stress-free as possible. I cannot thank EA enough!
