I currently teach in a private school. However, I'm hopeful to find a job in a better paying district next year. (public). I've already had a few friends suggest putting in applications now, but I think this is too early don't y'all? I got my credential in April of this year and applied like crazy, but it seemed to me the districts waited until the last minute to hire. I suppose this is a bit early to even be bringing up this topic, but in the true spirit of being a teacher, I'm just thinking/planning ahead.
