Hello to all you wonderful educators out there! It is a pleasure to be able to correspond with all of you!
I'm a recent first generation college graduate who went back to school to get her Single Subject teaching degree in English. After a grueling student teaching experience I'm ready to go out into the world and inspire the youth of tomorrow!
Currently, I'm subbing, but this summer I plan to apply for any and all secondary teaching jobs within a 45 mile radius.
With that being said, because my student teaching was such a difficult experience, I sadly don't have a lot of sample work or pictures. I did manage to get one letter of rec from my Master teacher, one from my supervisor and a few professors and former high school teachers, so I have that on my side
When I go into an interview, what should I bring? Should I put together a portfolio? What should go in there if I don't have sample work or pictures? How do I go in there and prove without a reasonable doubt that I'm the best candidate for the job?
Any and all advice would help! Especially in putting together a letter of introduction--some of the job positions on EDJOIN ask for them.
