Educate Kansas offering second round of retention and recruitment resources

Educate Kansas offering second round of retention and recruitment resources

Educate Kansas is sharing free marketing materials every week through the first full week of May, Teacher Appreciation Week, to help support your teacher recruitment efforts and promote the teaching profession. These resources are shared through a Canva link, with the ability to edit and share on your own media platforms.

This week’s marketing tool is a postcard. To download and learn how to best utilize this tool, click here. Teacher recruitment postcards can be printed and sent out to prospective teaching groups (i.e., high school CTE students on the education track, paraprofessionals who might be considering teaching, substitutes with potential, or strong candidates in your community who have college hours, an associate/bachelor's degree). You can add your logo and photos of your teachers and students.

Sample language to utilize around this template: Teaching is more than a job, it's a calling. Have you considered becoming an educator?

Possible hashtags to add:  #Inspired2Teach #EducateKansas #ThankaKansasTeacher #KSLeaders

The full “How to” toolkit can be found here. As we share these resources, you are invited to click each Canva link, edit and share it on your own media platforms during the given week. You will have the ability to customize and personalize the templates to your district, school, interlocal or cooperative. 

Some of the resources allow for a space to include a photo of a teacher or group and their name/team. If you do not want to edit the templates, another template is provided that doesn’t require a photo or editing. If you are using photos of students or staff please use the media release form.

If you want to customize the templates but are unfamiliar with using the Canva platform, you can watch the “How To” videos below.  

Questions should be directed to Cris Seidel at cris.seidel@greenbush.org.
