For real! And they cry that there's a 'teacher shortage..' umm no! There's plenty of us out there UNEMPLOYED who would <3 to get a job! Though talking with some friends they mentioned that if you're a good sub, they may not want to promote you to teacher and lose you as a sub. It's such an insult! They'd rather hire mediocre/ possibly crappy teachers than lose a good sub?! The thing too is that they'll hire these people and they probably won't stay. There's been a lot of resignations in the past few years, especially at one school, so how does that make any sense? And yet they'll still pass me over I'm sure. The small town mentality is total bs! I also just want to add that I suck at interviews, but am awesome at doing the job... which to me, is the only thing that should matter. But apparently it's not.
