Hello everyone! A few years ago I was on this board all the time, but once I landed a job I kind of fell away. BG: I teach middle school and have been at my current position for 4 years (8 years of teaching experience). I love my job and the people I work with. The downside is the drive- it's a 45 minute commute (I know some of you have way longer drives). I was thinking I would apply for something closer next school and I was scouting my local district website when I saw they had a job opening. I decided to begin the application process and updated my resume and cover letter. The online app asked for references with the option to upload letters, but it was not required in order to submit the app. I already submitted it and I'm thinking I won't hear anything, but I thought I would ask. I feel that it would be rude to ask for recommendation letters without some notice and also this late in the school year. Like I said before I applied on a whim, but I'm wondering if anyone received an interview without letters?
