    I guess since I was recommended to the school board last night and they approved, we can officially add me to the list! I waited a while after they offered me the job because I didn't want to jinx it!!

    How long have you been trying?
    About a year.
    How many resumes did you send out?
    Right around a hundred. Had to keep a spreadsheet to keep track of them all!
    How many interviews or job fairs?
    Four interviews and one job fair. Three of the interviews and the job fair were all last summer, though. This was my first interview of this season!
    What general geographic area?
    Texas
    And of course what grade and/or subject?
    8th ELA

    It would be interesting to pull up old threads like this one (how many years have we been doing this??) and see what the data shows with how many hires there are. I'm wondering if its low this year.
