    I believe this is the 3rd year we've done this.

    In 2008 at this time, we had 42 jobs listed.

    In 2009 at this time, we had 15 jobs listed.

    So we are on track for last year and a slight bit ahead :) GO US!

    I have a job for fall! I am currently covering a personal leave at a school, and they have hired me on as a permanent teacher for next year! I'll have my own room and I'm there to stay! I'll be moving from 3rd to 6th.

    Thanks!

    I've come across this forum and you guys seem wonderful! I have been following this post and I just wanted to say that I took some advice. I have been subbing for two years while looking for a permanent teaching position. My husband just found a job across the metroplex, so we have been debating moving. I have been following online job posts and applying to ones that I am qualified for, only to get an email back later that day saying the position has already been filled. I started emailing schools, saying I know that there aren't any open positions, but to please keep me in mind. Of course I got a couple of replies that said there are no open positions at this time (obviously they never read the letter), but I also received one that said they would keep me in mind and they loved my letter of interest! I was feeling very down about the upcoming job search and feeling alone. I realize that there are a lot of people in the same boat as I am and I see all the support they get from here. I just wanted to say thanks. It means a lot, even if you don't know the person personally. You guys are great!

    I got a job!! Got called for an interview on Monday, went in on Wednesday and got offered the job that afternoon, signed my contract on Friday. I felt like it was THE job from the moment I walked in -- I'm soo excited!!!

    How long have you been trying? I just graduated last month (May 7, 2010) but I've been filling out applications and posting my resume since December 2009.

    How many resumes did you send out? I posted my resume to the Texas Association of Journalism Educators, so that went out to almost 200 people. Then I applied to about 20 districts directly and sent my resume to an additional 10 districts (that didn't have online systems).

    How many interviews or job fairs? One job fair, three interviews

    What general geographic area? East Texas

    And of course what grade and/or subject? Grades 9-12: journalism, newspaper and yearbook

    We are so far ahead of last year and the major amount of job postings probably won't start for another month. This is wonderful!

    I posted that my tutoring contract had been renewed after I was told it wouldn't be. After signing, I get a phone call for a K job.....sigh. Well, what is meant to be is meant to be. I like what I am doing and am happy to have it for another year. You never know right?

    Well congrats to everybody on their new job offers. I am currently waiting to find out if I am to be given an official job offer and if I do then the job will start in September. For us that is end of term 3/beginning of term 4. Initially it will be a special ed maternity position but if all goes well that will lead into a longer term contract. I'll just have to wait and see how it pans out.

    Thanks for adding me to your list!

    I have had a teaching job for 4 years...but have wanted something else since the beginning.

    This year I sent out 3 applications. I got 2 interview offers...only accepted one. The one I went to was offered!

    :) Congratulations to everyone!!!
