    It's time to start searching (if you haven't already!).

    When you accept an offer/receive a contract, let us know so we can share the good news!

    What grade and/or subject?
    How long have you been trying?
    How many resumes did you send out?
    How many interviews or job fairs?
    What general geographic area?

    I can't wait to start this year's list so we can all start celebrating with each other! Happy job hunting!

    I am feeling the same way Yellowdaisies. I have had 2 interview for next year and 3 next week. I really hope we all get jobs. I have been reading these posts for the last like 4 years and been dreaming of the day I could add my name. I wish you luck on getting the job you interviewed for last week!
