Claire Johnstone, Teacher, Schools Elite

"This year I taught at a Primary School and a Kindergarten. At first I felt a bit nervous with the number of children in each class (I had only taught in Language Centres), but I soon got used to it. The classes are big but you are given two TAs who are helpful. Overall the kids are lovely and want to please their teacher.

Even though I didn't see management on a daily basis, they were quick to respond to e-mails and were able to fix problems. I enjoyed working with the other teachers. We shared teaching ideas and had a laugh at break time.

On the social side of things, I went out for lunch with the teachers and TAs and we have met up for a beer in Bia Hois.

One of the best things about working for Schools Elite is that all the teaching is during the day leaving evenings and weekends free."
