    me, but I still am hoping to hear back about either the private school or APS. I am also waiting to see if my nmreap application did anygood. I expressed interest in about ten jobs or so earlier today. The harderst thing for me is the misleading news reports all my friends and family keep seeing. They don't understand why people aren't begging for the large number of us looking for a job.

    Ugh. I qualify for this club, unfortunately. I haven't had any interviews, or even a phone call, for that matter. I don't know what to do. :(

    Me too. I have had one interview and that was not a planned one, I kind of stumbled into it. It went well but I don't know if it will come to anything. I am not going to be negative..someone will call with the perfect job any day now, or any job or.. I just have to remember that God is in control and not me.

    No job yet. Still searching, but it is rough times in PA if you are looking for an elem. teaching job, unless you live in the city (it might be a little better there) I do have an interview with the IU this morning and I hoping they offer me something. I was already a long term sub there this past year. Oh, I wish it could be that easy!! Good luck everyone!!:)

    God I hope so. I keep sinking deeper and deeper into depression. There is absolutely nothing posted. I hate when friends say things like "I can't believe you didn't apply at such and such school. They just hired a dozen teachers." First off, I didn't know they were hiring. Second, I don't believe that they hired that many. Third, were they positions I was qualified for? Fourth, are you trying to make me feel worse? Why am I always a day late? :confused:

    All I want to do is work. Why can't someone see that? :huh:

    I'm in the boat too. I've had no interviews and no phone calls. I've applied in two states and yet nothing. It doesn't help when your father calls you and tells you about some news report saying "x" school district has jobs only to have to remind him again that I'm not qualified for any of the positions...

    I'm just ready to have a classroom somewhere... Not to mention it would be nice to know where I'm going to be living.

    Well, I'm in the club, too. I've only had one interview and nothing else. Starting to wonder what else I can possibly do as a job with a teaching degree. I am trying to remain positive. I keep telling myself...God is in control. However, try telling that to someone else and they look at you with that "bless her heart, she doesn't stand a chance, she's grasping at straws and making excuses" look! Ha!

    I would like to be a fly on the wall in the dist/principal's office:

    Hmm, we need a teacher. Okay, let's put out an ad.
    Alright, now...wait for 50 people to apply. Look over resumes.
    Call one or two, about 2-4 weeks from now, we don't want to seem desparate.

    Interview them, and keep them waiting until the day before school starts. Maybe we can get somebody better, and if not, we know they aren't going anywhere! :(

    If our friend/relative/bosses kid stops by, immediately give them the job.

    Never call the other person, who we really liked.

    They are bound to find something. :unsure:

    I just got married and moved to California in January. Depending on where I get a job I may be leaving the hubby and moving right back to where we moved from. :(:help:

    I had to wait 4 years before I got my first job in a private school. I couldn't even get a job as a parapro because my district doesn't hire parapros with an education degree.
