    Okay, so I didn't want to come here until I knew I had it in the bag (well almost all the way), because I still had to pass through HR and the Super. Met with both, am on the list to get board approved on Monday will be signing the contract Wednesday. I have accepted the job with the super... so I'm 99.5% sure the job's mine as long as the board approves all the teachers on the list. =)

    How long have you been trying?

    I have been trying to get a teaching job since February 2008 about. It was hard because we moved twice from different states so that did NOT help me at all because I had to get the other state's licensure.

    How many resumes did you send out?

    Overall... too many to count. This year 20-25 I would have to guess.

    How many interviews or job fairs?

    4 Screening Interviews
    1 job fair
    1 official with the principal interview (although another one offered)

    What general geographic area?

    Ohio

    And of course what grade and/or subject?

    5th Grade Self-contained as of this school year...

    Got one! Private teacher for one very awesome fifth grade girl. I can't wait to get to know her better!

    Oh-applications... maybe 30? At least. Although the unemployment office is calling next week to find out why I hadn't gotten a job yet, so they obviously don't understand that many applications don't always = job.

    I've been looking since December for ANY job, but seriously looking for a teaching job since the beginning of April, I guess. That's when I decided I wanted to stay in the classroom. Even though my classroom now is a guest bedroom/office with only one student.
