    WOW! Considering current teachers around here had until last Friday to announce their resignations, there are still plenty of more job openings to come. I'm so excited for all of the current job hunters. The opportunities are going to start opening.

    I believe NJ was doing something similar with a date of August 1st, but I haven't heard for sure since school let out in June. Due to the new benefits pay-in starting with new contracts, some in NJ may look to retire now rather than have to pay into benefits...so keep your eyes open!

    When you land a job for next year, please share the following info with us:

    How long have you been trying?
    I am so excited to be added to this list!!
    I resigned from my job in June because it was only 1/2 day and have been looking since making this decision (about April-ish).


    How many resumes did you send out?
    I applied to maybe 15 jobs, handed out packets with resume, cover letter, brochure, and letters of rec to every local district (and then some!)


    How many interviews or job fairs?
    Only 1 interview!!!! (then a lesson demo, then the offer!)


    What general geographic area?
    NJ

    And of course what grade and/or subject?

    Kindergarten

    How many interviews or job fairs? 8 interviews, 2 job fairs.
    What general geographic area? Queens and Bronx area of NYC.
    And of course what grade and/or subject? Elementary

    ....got hired in a nice area of Queens that borders the suburbs. Very happy about it!!! And the Principal got good ratings from the teachers.
