    Wondering when it's 'too much.' I've applied for 3 positions so far. Had one interview. I want to apply for another position, but does this reflect poorly on me or does it look like 'hey, this girl is a go-getter' and they think nothing more of it?

    Thoughts?

    I have applied to 15 different positions in my district. It was for 5 different schools. I think it shows that you are interested in teaching. I don't think it is too much. :)

    I think the district expects people to apply to more than one job, if they're qualified and interested. If anything, it lets them know you're flexible. It definitely can't say anything bad about you.

    Apply. I agree that they expect you to apply for multiple positions.

    Oh yes, apply for all you want. In my last school, I applied for a resource room position and ended up being called in for a position that I hadn't applied for because I'd mentioned my prior experience with retardation. I've put in applications for every school in the local districts and for the ones I'm really interested in, I've called the principals as well and expressed my interest.

    I would apply to as many as you can. That just gives you more chances to get a job. I know when I see a job opening that I like, i apply immediately.
