Who we are
How We Started Ratio Staffing
Our first baby (of three) was born as well as the thought of connecting preschool teachers and preschools. Until 2017 I was a stay at home dad bringing our baby to visit his mom at her preschool. Each time we would visit I would hear from the teachers and admin about the difficulties in connecting with and finding substitute preschool teachers.
Toward the end of my time being home with our first born he began attending preschool. It turned out his school was having a difficult time finding an assistant director. I offered my help in reviewing their interview processes and procedures. In a matter of two months, we were able to find and place the Assistant Director that is there to this day; a feat the school had been working for the last twelve months!
We become the leading company
With the achievement of our first connection as well as a few other successful teacher placements it became clear there was not only a need to help schools connect with substitutes but a need to help early childhood educators and preschools find each other in general. Ratiostaffing.com for all your preschool staffing needs was formed!
Daily, Real Time Substitutes! Win-Win-Win!
While helping dozens of preschools in the SF Bay Area with their staffing needs, I was also listening to the predicament they were in when it came to substitute preschool teachers. It sounded like the substitute situation was just as bad if not worse than when I was a preschool teacher 20 years prior! For the next approx. three years I listened to and spoke with preschools and preschool teachers all over the SF Bay Area about their experience with substitutes and substitute agencies. All the while I was speaking with California Community Care Licensing, reading about substitute staffing models, meeting with the CEO of a large substitute staffing agency, trying to find some relief for preschools and teachers. We needed a win-win for preschools and preschool teachers because the most important party the preschoolers need the win! Finally the solution was right there in the nurturing, caring environments being created by preschools; flexibility. Our daily, real time substitute platform was formed giving the preschools and preschool teachers the flexibility they each need. Work when you want, where you want. Select the substitute you want, when you, and ask them to stay. All with no additional hiring fees nor restrictions on working dates, hiring dates, working regions, etc. This all means at the end of the day the preschoolers have their calm, caring, environment. Win-win-win!
Ratio Staffing 2.0
Our substitute platform is a hit! Preschools are connecting with preschool teachers! Preschool teachers are connecting with preschools, getting short term, mid-range, and long-term substitute work. A number of our substitutes have even already found regular teaching positions and stayed at a school they substituted for! Thanks to a fortuitous conversation with the founder of a preschool utilizing our platform we were able to connect with the esteemed Delia Fitzpatrick, founder of The Good Rural www.thegoodrural.org. With Delia’s generous collaboration and expertise we were the fortunate benefactors of the renowned abilities of Latifah Abdur, founder of Elite Vivant www.elitevivant.com and we were able to launch this brand new platform focused solely on substitute preschool teachers, for you! Here I hope you find ease in connecting with each other, calm and relief in your day, and ultimately joy in our profession. Thank you all for being here. Thank you all for your tireless, endless dedication and care for so many people in our world!
