    Another possible job--my oldest daughter graduated last week in elementary education. She has an unofficial offer for 5th math and science. It will hopefully become official tomorrow!!

    What grade and/or subject? - High school biology

    How long have you been trying? - Since the end of January when I found out I was non-renewed

    How many resumes did you send out? - about 20

    How many interviews or job fairs? - 2 job fairs, 4 interviews

    What general geographic area? - Central California

    I'm so happy to be posting to this thread! When I found out that my contract was being non-renewed without cause, I thought that was the end of my teaching career. But I applied for every job I was qualified for, and went to both of the job fairs in this area. The school that hired me never even asked about the non-renewal. So it is possible!
