    You know, I was thinking about the bad economy and the lack of teaching jobs. I just checked the list of jobs from last year, and as of April 20, only 4 people on this forum had found a job. So this year's 6 so far is quite good! :)

    I'm hoping the position I'm going to interview for next week will be THE ONE! I'm honestly ready for a fresh start--- there's stuff I would do a lot differently and I just don't think I can do it at the school I'm at now. *crossing fingers and praying*

    Thanks so much chemteach!! :) I think as long as the people are nice to me, I will be fine. I got along very nicely with the principal (at least I think I did :lol:) during the phone interview. It was more chatting than question and answer drilling.

    I'm just trying to stay confident while I'm teaching. Seriously, nobody has seen how awesome I am in a classroom because of the anxiety I get knowing I'm being observed.

    A faculty member came up to me yesterday and said that her daughter (who is in 4th) was very upset to hear I wasn't coming back next year--- I already have the 4th graders excited about 5th grade science!

    So I'm hoping to really show the people my talents and I know I'd do that if I can remain confident.

    CONGRATS to all of those who have already found a job for next school year. I hope you love your faculty and students. :thumb: Hopefully I'll be able to add my name to the list soon.

    Well I had already accepted it...and they recommended me to HR...I'm actually pretty excited about this school...the 70% poverty rate is a bit high compared to what I'm used to. However, I'm excited at the chance for this opportunity and I think it will help me develop a strong amount as a teacher. BTW-Congrats on the job fair..i predict you'll b on this board within the next 2 weeks. Maybe I should've gone....OHHH WELL!! Keep doin' your thing.

    How long have you been trying?
    I've been trying since last July. Although I must say, my search was only specific to one area last July and it was late in the game.

    How many resumes did you send out?
    I sent out probably 50-100 video resumes, my website, etc. The majority of vid. resumes I sent out were to HR Departments. I did, however, send out a few handfuls to principals.

    How many interviews or job fairs?
    Job fairs - 0 - Interviews for full time jobs - about 5

    What general geographic area?
    I looked mainly in the south. I strongly considered private, public, & charter schools.

    What grade and/or subject?
    I mainly looked for upper el. jobs.

    * It was funny, though, b/c after I was offered this position, alot of other principals have contated me...the old saying is true...when it rains...it pours.
    **Anyone interested in private schools, get a hold of me. I found an agency that does alot of the work for you...I will give you the website and some advice to be the best candidate possible for them to get your info. out there.

    How long have you been trying?
    On and off since 2007. I worked other jobs, trying to convince myself I could be happy not teaching. Periodically I would start looking again. I finally took a para job in my dream school and got hired as a real teacher after one year, although I did go up against 40 other candidates and went through the three-round interview process.

    How many resumes did you send out?
    4 or 5.

    How many interviews or job fairs?
    One interview.

    What general geographic area?
    Denver, Colorado

    What grade and/or subject? High school English (various grades and classes)

    I cannot believe how lucky I am.
