***Your resume in .pdf or WORD format.
***A short Video demo: 1 - 2 minutes long. Introduce yourself, where you live, your educational background, and any experience teaching or working with kids. Then tell or read a children’s story. (Don’t stress over this video demo! Qkids wants to see that you are an energetic, enthusiastic person who can relate well with children.)
My advice about the video: 1) Smile a lot. 2) Use facial expression and body language, gestures, etc…. as much as possible to make the story come alive. (Examples) 3) Consider TELLING a story - like an AESOP’s fable - that you know by heart, so you can concentrate on visual gestures and facial expression support to the story. 4) Vary your voice intonations, as well. (Different or funny voices for different characters or deep voice for the word “big”, etc.) 5) Have a clean background area Try to have clear sound and video quality.
You can upload your video to YouTube or Google Drive.
