    Keeping my fingers crossed it will get even better as time goes on and we will all end up with jobs this year. Also I am hoping to have chance at a job when I finish student teaching in Jan 2014.

    I have a new job but at a school that I previously taught at so I do not know if I really count. I left this school 10 years ago because the commute was too long with having young children. I am now going back since my "baby" turned 20 yesterday. I was not really looking but was very unhappy at my past job. I will be teaching chemistry once again (I have been teaching biology which is my least favorite subject to teach). I will also be a science fair mentor to some of the better students who are trying to win to go to the international science fair. I am very excited.

    Thanks!

    Tell him to volunteer! I am pretty sure this is what helped me get a job - I was completely active in my states Art Education association, helped them put on art shows, attended meetings, state and national conferences, and also volunteered in my community to teach art to students with special needs and ran my own art camp (paid for everything myself so it would be free to kids) every summer.

    Ironically, I am giving a presentation at my states next art ed conference on "transitioning from student to professional" glad I will be able to talk about finding a job!


    Edit : I saw a TON of Ohio art ed openings this season. I don't have certification there (Praxis was always on my to do list but it never happened.) I still looked because all my aunts and a cousin are teachers outside of Columbus :)

    Yay teachart!!! I'm so excited for you! If you need help finding an apartment, let me know! If I don't know the answer, my step brother definitely will since his mom lives in that area!

    I love this thread!

    I am still a student (three more years to go - eek!) but it is giving me insight into what all is involved in the application process. It also gives me hope that so many have found jobs!

    Congrats to everyone and I hope you all have wonderful years!

    It's official! I'm the new vice-principal. I'm so excited, but I know I'll miss teaching.

    I got a new job!

    After worrying about the job I was transferring to, I got a job in another district. They offered it today, and the board should approve it on Monday! I will be teaching 6th grade Reading/English block.

    We are JUST getting into hiring season now. There are over 150 openings in my county alone, especially looking for elementary and middle school. I cannot wait to hear that one of you is going to be teaching nearby!
