    Hellloooooo Fifth Grade! It's good to see you again :]

    Whoop whoop! Although my spirits were a little down because I rescinded another job offer, my interview thereafter was fruitful, because I landed a job!

    +I am teaching fifth grade! (this is what I taught last year)
    +I have been trying to find a job since May, since I wasn't reappointed due to drastic budget cuts in my county and allocations.
    +I applied to about 20 vacancies spanning two counties. I handed in about 10 cover letters and resumes. Ironically, the majority of schools that called me for interviews were ones that I did not hand in paperwork to.
    +I had four interviews and had two offers.
    +I will be teaching in Central Florida.

    Congrats to everyone! We are doing well :) We have 41 jobs listed (if I counted right)...last year at this time we had 52, so let's catch up to last year's numbers! Go us! :D

    Yes--you are correct with the 41 jobs and that is not bad considering the economy is much worse this year than last. How many jobs did we end up with last summer in total?
