I just wanted to write this letter to say thank you for giving me the confidence and opportunity to go back into teaching. Having not activley taught for four years after taking maternity leave I wasn't sure if I would be confident enough to go back especially with the introdution of the new primary frameworks and interactive whiteboards. However,the schools you placed me with were really supportive and the encouragement you gave soon got my confidence back and after the first few assignments I felt like I had never been away. I have enjoyed all of my assignments.I really appreciated the time you took to listen about the age range I wanted to work with,that I only wanted to start by doing two days a week and that I did not want to travel too far from home. I would most definitely recommend working for Link Education not only because as employers I thought you were very professional and friendly,but also for schools looking to employ agency staff I think you would do the utmost to ensure you had the most suitable person available.
