    dream job!

    I just accepted a position this afternoon that I really feel is my dream job and I'm so excited I want to shout it for everyone to hear! However, I won't because I haven't made an official announcement to my colleagues/students that I'm leaving (that will be less fun...). Virtual shouting will have to do. :D

    What grade and/or subject? High School, AP Biology!!!

    How long have you been trying? Been keeping an eye open for a while, really started this round mid-April when postings starting flying up.

    How many resumes did you send out? One resume, but online applications in three districts

    How many interviews or job fairs? One interview

    What general geographic area? Georgia

    I'm so excited about the people I met, the classes I get to teach, and the fact that they want me to revive their Science Olympiad team. This is the first time I've gotten a job where I think "This is the school I'll retire from."

    Congrats to all the other new hires out there, and I'll send my good vibes toward those of you still looking! :thumb:

    Just signed my letter of intent at my new school for 2014-2015!

    What grade and/or subject? High School, Economics & Business

    How long have you been trying? Since the end of January

    How many resumes did you send out? Applied in nine different school divisions

    How many interviews or job fairs? One real interview, four job fair screening interviews

    What general geographic area? Virginia

    Amazing how much easier interviewing/landing a job is with one year of teaching under your belt! Have faith!

    I've been renting my house out for this school year since the commute would have been dreadful and have felt "displaced" personally this school year. So happy that I'll be heading back to my house, my city, and all my friends for the next school year!

    And for those of you in similar situations looking to relocate to be closer to home, friends and family--don't be afraid to mention it in the interview. I explained my situation honestly during the interview and how I was looking to find my "forever home" that works for me personally and professionally. I think it definitely helped!
