The cultural alignment between schools and teachers is often overlooked, but it is one of the best predictors of mutual success. Like any other relationship, FIT MATTERS. myEDmatch is a job-matching site for educators that connects schools and teachers with shared missions, beliefs, and goals. We help great teachers and great schools find each other, leading to great outcomes for kids.
Every year, more than half a million teachers in public and private K-12 schools change jobs. An estimated 1 out of 2 new teachers leave the profession after five years, largely due to dissatisfaction with their work environments. The cost of recruiting and training new teachers each year is a staggering $7 billion across the country – not to mention the devastating impact teacher turnover has on students and communities.
So myEDmatch has made it radically easier to connect the right teacher to the right classroom. Teachers and schools build online profiles, get matched with high-fit counterparts based on a survey of their core beliefs about education, search for jobs and candidates that meet their needs, and communicate with their favorites, ultimately landing the right teacher in the right classroom.
