    I bet it's all about waiting.

    Administrators are waiting until the very last minute this year to finalize their staffs. With so many people unemployed, they're not sure which or how many kids will move out of the district. They're not sure whether the states will scrounge up more funding, or whether it will be cut even more.

    They're not going to commit their resources until they have no choice but to do so.

    Look for things to improve as the start of school gets closer.

    Change my information please. I'm still a new teacher but instead of 5th grade I am now a KINDERGARTEN teacher! I am thrilled! I like the lower grades so this suits me perfectly. I have a separate thread on that called "Change of Plans."

    I just accepted a job teaching public pre-k in the same school I student taught at 3 years ago.

    So I am a North Carolina pre-k teacher! Woot!

    How long have you been trying?
    I tried all last year (including mid-year) to get a public school job. I was working at Head Start but left mid-year to sub. This year, applying since May.

    How many resumes did you send out?
    Probably 3-4, not many pre-k jobs in my area that pay above minimum wage.

    How many interviews or job fairs?
    Last year, about 4, this year just the 1!

    What general geographic area?
    North Carolina

    And of course what grade and/or subject?
    Pre-Kindergarten, 4-year-olds

    I started the job search a little late last year and didn't stay on top of openings as much as I should have. Since Feb. of this year I sent out approx. 300 packets via mail to all of the SD in Ohio (I was NOT going to get left out in the dust this year). I also attended 2 job fairs, accepted a "committment to employment" for a district in MD in April, didn't hear anything from that district even after repeated calls so I kept up with OH. Last year I had 4 interviews, this year 10. And as these things always go I accepted my job on Tuesday and was called by 2 principals from the district in MD re: phone interviews. It was nice to be able to say, "I'm sorry but I've already accepted another position," (after your district left me hanging for 2 months and expected me to move/set up my classroom in less than a week)!

    This thread is awesome to see! I know we'll easily break 100.

    add me!

    Despite having just recently had dental surgery and looking like the godfather, I kicked butt on my interview today and was offered the position on the spot!

    I am now a CPS Pre-K teacher on the northside!! Woot woot!!

    How long have you been trying?
    For two years. Two years ago I tried unsuccessfully from Ohio. Last year I moved to chicago but started looking for a job late in the game and didn't find anything. Went to the January job fair and got a maternity leave sub position.

    How many resumes did you send out?
    Since April, I've dropped off and mailed about 40 resumes.

    How many interviews or job fairs?
    2 job fairs - with one interview that came out of that, but didn't get the job. 1 interview from dropping off a resume and i got the job. Word of advice - even if a school doesn't have openings, still drop off your resume, you never know if a position might open up. My new school told me the same thing but a position opened up and now I got the job! :)

    What general geographic area?
    Chicago, only within chicago public school district

    And of course what grade and/or subject?
    Pre-K
