If your board is currently hiring French teachers, the career section of the board website should make this clear.

  • How long does it take for a prospective French teacher to find out about French career opportunities at your board?
  • How many clicks did it take?
  • Is it written in English and French?
  • Does it discuss the support that exists for French teachers at your board?
