Hi everyone! I am a new prospective high school teacher currently on the job hunt. At the moment, there are about 10 viable vacancies posted to my state's teaching application system, but I've only applied to four. I'm wondering what advice you all have about choosing schools during the application process. The four schools that I've chosen so far are ones in which I think I'll be happy and will be a good fit; the others are very poorly rated, have unusually high teacher turnovers, and/or are in locations (areas with high crime rates) in which I don't think I will be comfortable living and working as a young, single female. I check the application website daily, and every time I see those vacancies, I think to myself, "Any job's better than none at all!" and "I don't want to put all of my eggs in just four baskets," but at the same time, I'm looking for a permanent job and a new home in a place I will find happiness. I understand that it's only the beginning of April, and more schools are posting vacancies every week, but I'm just a bit nervous about this and am wondering if I can get some advice. Thanks!
