Planning to be a Catholic Teacher? It is critical for you to know that to be hired to teach in any Catholic School Board in Ontario as part of your application for employment, there must be a letter of reference from your pastor. If you, or if your adult child, are planning to apply to teach in a Catholic School, contact with the pastor before Thanksgiving is highly recommended. Please plan to have a conversation with your pastor early in the process and you will avoid disappointment and stress at a time when applications are to be submitted.
