    My contract was finally renewed ( nothing like waiting until the last day of school to tell us who is being offered a spot again for fall!) at my current school. I have been asked to change grade levels though and will be moving up to 2nd! :D

    Hello fellow Chicagoan! I have been applying in the south suburbs since December 2010.
    I have my first interview for the 2012-2013 school year tomorrow, for a kindergarten.
    Glad to hear that there is some hope in the area! Congrats! :thumb:

    I was offered and accepted a job over a week ago, but wanted to wait until things were official before I posted in this thread! :haha:

    What grade and/or subject? 6th grade language arts
    How long have you been trying? About 2 months
    How many resumes did you send out? 6
    How many interviews or job fairs? 2 interviews (same school & position); 1 job fair
    What general geographic area? NC

    I just graduated in May, and this is my first "real" job! I cannot be more excited! I'm also a tad overwhelmed - is that normal?! :unsure: I just want to say thank you to all the helpful people on this board. I don't think I could have done as well without you all! :D
