When I think of 123 Teachers, ‘personal’ is overwhelmingly the first word that springs to mind. I know everyone on the team, and just as importantly, they know me. It is this uniquely refreshing approach that sets Donna, Chris and Kirsty aside from the larger, corporate organisations, making 123 Teachers my agency of choice. Just as in the classroom, the team at 123 Teachers realise the importance of relationship building and are therefore able to establish and maintain the trust and confidence required for a successful working relationship. I am proud to be a part of their team and equally proud to represent them.
