Gotta say this is some bad timing for people trying to get into the teaching gig. I'm in the same boat. Most districts where I live (Dallas/Fort Worth area) just don't seem to be hiring that many people this year because there were very few turnovers. I just contacted a rather large school district in the DFW area a few minutes ago and they hired less than half of what they normally hire for each school year. Same story applies to several other school districts I've called and applied for in the last four months. Oh well. Guess I'll do some student teaching in the process.
