    I don't have my own classroom, but I was hired as a full-time second grade TA at 3:00 the day before school started this year. I am located on Long Island, in NY.

    Just reinforces the fact that you should never stop trying, not even up to the last minute. I'm not going to lie, I'm taking a full time graduate course load at night this year, so I actively looked for a TA job. I didn't feel that the demands of my schedule would work well with being a first year teacher. I did send out over 300 resumes, applied to jobs, and did multiple mass mailings over the summer. However, I would have done more if I wasn't overloaded with night classes. I did email about 60 elementary school principals directly the week before school started to let them know I was interested in a full-time TA position, and attached my resume and cover letter. I had interviews and received phone calls from many districts that week, so emailing really does work. Every action helps!

    I completely missed this thread.

    A little background: I've been a Special Ed sub for my District since '09. Almost all of my assignments have been long-term (3 weeks- 6 months). A Study hall position opened up in July, after I'd already been promised a permanent position with the SPED Dept. I interviewed, and two days later was hired. I'm a "highly qualified" Para, but my contract mirrors that of a starting teacher in my Dept (I'm attached to the English Dept). As an aside, sometimes it pays to be a sub. I was recruited for this position by the Principal of the HS, after completing a long-term SPED assignment at his school last year.

    What grade and/or subject? High School
    How long have you been trying? '10
    How many resumes did you send out? 5 or 6.
    How many interviews or job fairs? 3
    What general geographic area? Pacific Northwest

    Make that 157! Yesterday was my first day! :D

    What grade and/or subject? First Grade ESOL
    How long have you been trying? I've casually applied for a few jobs in the last year. I've been a SAHM, so I didn't feel pressure to get a job right away... I only wanted something I thought I'd really enjoy.
    How many resumes did you send out? 4 or 5
    How many interviews or job fairs? Two interviews.
    What general geographic area? Florida

    I was called on a Friday to interview the following Monday... I spent the weekend reading through all of the interview questions on this forum and also ordered an ESL strategies book on Amazon and paid for overnight shipping. The interview went SO well. I felt like I nailed every question, and the principal let me know that she would be finishing up interviews the next day, but that as of now, I was at the top of her list. The next afternoon she called and offered me the position! I am so excited and thankful for this forum... I really think it made me feel confident going into the interview.
