CREATIVE BRIEF

BACKGROUND

myEDmatch transforms careers, classrooms, and communities by helping educators find their perfect match, by promoting mission and culture alignment by connecting schools and teachers with shared educational beliefs and goals. We help schools find and recruit best-fit talent and provide teachers with job opportunities, connections, and resources to help them thrive in their careers.

OBJECTIVES

  • Become a place where educators, regardless of job status, come to develop a supportive network of professional peers for advice and resources and build an online presence that showcases their work and accomplishments.

  • Develop an understanding of how to build a positive school environment from the inside out, starting with teachers and administrators becoming aligned in mission and culture.

TARGET AUDIENCE

  • Teachers who believe that mission and culture alignment is critical to student success and feel empowered to own their career.

  • School Leaders who are seeking to develop mission and culture alignment in their schools by finding, recruiting, hiring, and developing best-fit talent.
