    Got a job in a preschool

    I got a job as a lead preschool teacher after being a stay at home mom/unemployed teacher for about 5 years. I've sent out dozens and dozens of resumes over the years but where I live it is hard to get a public school job (I even went back and got special education certified). I will be teaching part time to start in a mixed age 2.5-5 year old classroom and will be taking my 2.5 year old son with me. Excited but a little nervous as to how I am going to handle the different age groups together.

    Accepted Offer! So happy!

    I've been following this thread and others on this site for months, but this is my first post. I was offered a position yesterday and accepted. :) I was at Starbucks between two interviews in other districts when I got the call. I had a 2nd interview with another school that afternoon, and I would have accepted if offered there, but I had decided I was going to accept the first offer and stick with that. I have received 3 more calls for interviews since yesterday.

    What grade and/or subject? Middle School Language Arts
    How long have you been trying? 2 and 1/2 months.
    How many resumes did you send out? Several
    How many interviews or job fairs? 2 job fairs. Job did not come from job fair, though. Sent out resumes to desired districts.
    What general geographic area? Southeast


    I love these boards and plan to stay active.

    This week, I saw more openings than all summer and more are being added each day. If you haven't been offered a position yet, don't lose heart. Just keep applying and stay positive. I look forward to hearing about your offer!
