    What grade and/or subject? 4th, I believe. She wants me in 4th, but might be 3rd.

    How long have you been trying? Overall, since May of 2010.
    How many resumes did you send out? This year, only 4 online. Last year, too many to remember. (I only sent out resumes to the area where my husband and I will be moving.)
    How many interviews or job fairs? This year, one main interview, then a supplementary interview with the superintendent. Last year, I only had 2 teaching interviews.
    What general geographic area? Midwest/Southern Missouri

    No labs and they spent $10,000 on lab equipment for physics last school year. Now it will sit in the closet and collect dust.
