That's a wrap for 2021, bring on 2022!
What a year 2021 has been for educators! We had many challenges that the pandemic gave us, but this didn’t deter our staff to keep persevering throughout the year and continue to teach in schools.
The year started off very strong with a very high demand of work in schools! Everyone was so glad to be back in schools for face-to-face learning and with the expectations of not having another year of disruption like 2020 brought.
During the middle of the year, this expectation of not having disruptions was crushed with instant lockdowns which bought back the uncanny memories of 2020 with remote and onsite learning for teachers and students. With pandemic cases rising , restrictions were put into place with the travel bubble and mask wearing for indoors and outdoors. New laws such as QR Coding check in’s, covid testing and mandatory vaccinations certificates were then brought in later in the year for teachers to work safely during the pandemic. This did affect the usual busy period the middle of the year is known to be. However, CRT work was still needed for essential students that learned onsite at schools.
There was some light at the end of the tunnel with the end of Melbourne’s longest lockdown and students were slowly bought back into the classroom in Term 4. There was a high demand of needing CRT's in schools which brought back the busy period we had in the start of the year!
All of these challenges 2021 threw at us may have been exhausting for all, but this did not stop our staff from doing what they love to do…TEACHING! Staff continued being that positive role model to students by showing how perseverance and determination is crucial in this day and age.
If you or if you know anyone who has a great passion for teaching or educational support, we would love to hear from you and work with us next year! 2022 is going to be a more prosperous year with plenty of work in schools and a year of opportunity to grow in your teaching career!
