    Testimonials from teachers in the USA

      “When I first signed up with Scoot, I didn't know what to expect. From the very beginning, they made me feel welcome. It was clear that I was no longer alone on my job search but that I was part of a team. They really tried to look past the resume at me as a person, they wanted to make sure it was a good fit for my personality.” - Michelle, Middle School ELA Teacher

      “Subbing can be a terrible job. But, I have found that Tom and James make every effort to make subbing a great experience for the teachers and schools. It's obvious that Scoot has done their research about the schools they work with. I really enjoyed my interview and it was nice to be interviewed by someone who wasn't looking at just checking boxes and was genuinely interested in your experiences. When finding you work Tom and James try their hardest to match teachers to schools based on their availability. location and experience. ” - Andi, Substitute Teacher
