    What grade and/or subject? elementary self contained students with autism (most likely 2nd to 4th grade age)
    How long have you been trying? Since May
    How many resumes did you send out? Lost count, I emailed probably close to 50 principals/sent in applications, etc. Maybe more or less, but never-the-less, it was a lot.
    How many interviews or job fairs? 2 Florida job fairs (last week) and 3 interviews with principals this week.
    What general geographic area? South Florida

    I was laid off in Delaware due to a reduction in force. I also had to make a decision to take care of some personal things or complete the 200 page project needed for certification (I chose to take care of stuff) and then moved to Georgia (live with my parents after 5 yrs on my own) and was hired to teach self contained at a private school. Said Private school folded before it began and I was out of a job yet again. Took a nanny/case manager job and left due to abuse, drugs, and alcohol problems with the family.

    Finally got my degree (but not the certification) and received a statement of eligibility for FL ESE K-12 cert. Then I applied for the autism and severe and profound endorsements (just got those as well). I went to three interviews with principals, and one of the principals (the job I actually wanted) offered me the job on the spot! It is definitely a huge relief, now just have to resubmit all the pesky and annoying paperwork before they can send me the official offer letter.

    Have to probably do another alternative route to cert. program, but thankfully the one in the district does NOT include 200 page papers...

    There are 47 jobs as of 7/2/11. Not too bad considering the economy!! I heard in a professional development the other day that Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi are lifting the hiring freezes that were in place so hopefully some still looking will be posting real soon.

    So I am still looking at a couple of options in the next coming weeks but here's what I've got so far:


    What grade and/or subject? 7th and 8th History
    How long have you been trying?I think it was about a month
    How many resumes did you send out?Oy, that I do not remember. I would say at least 15-20
    How many interviews or job fairs?1 interview but I have an HR interview next week for another school district
    What general geographic area? Metro DC

    I'm pretty solidly going with that position because the school is great and I would have amazing resources at my disposal. Yay for teaching history-my absolute fave!
