Hello, I am a bit confused with all the required paperwork to apply for a teaching position. Am I correct in assuming in addition to the cover letter, and CV I also need a personal statement and E.S.? This seems like a huge amount of redundancy. Additionally, can anyone point me to a resource for advice on what employers are looking for in a personal statement and E.S.? I have yet to see someone request an E.S. but it is mentioned in threads on this site very often. I am from the US and the application process is much easier there making this a bit confusing.
