So by this time, I either think that the urban district I applied to has either passed over my application or they just don't need anymore subs. They start school on Tuesday and I haven't had any call backs. I know urban substitute positions are fairly competitive, I just didn't know they were so competitive that even teachers with several years of teaching experience in the classroom couldn't get a position. I'm certain that my references and letters of rec are spot on. Other possibilities are that they simply have a large already established pool of subs (many who may be experienced retired teachers), there is simply a huge pool of talent to draw from, being a city, and/or they simply won't hire new subs until they REALLY need them (like after the first time they hit a day where everyone is calling out or has conferences to attend). Anybody with experience in this? Has anyone been called to interview as a sub mid-year?
