I have been working at this same school for about 6 years. I have done it all: started as a sub, took pool sub role, and took ESE teacher assistant position so I had benefits and because the principal had asked me to. I also work in athletics namely basketball and football. I have also worked graduation and chaperoned every event possible. I have 4 endorsements: ESE, Language Arts, ESOL, and Social Science. I am also adding Reading. I am beloved by the staff and fellow teachers. I have also got exemplary scores especially in knowledge of subject area on my evaluations. I mean one vice principal even nicknamed me The Mayor. Sounds like I should be the ideal candidate, right? Well 3 Language Arts teachers retired and they all recommended me for their individual job. Yet I was passed over for teachers with more experience. Fine, but then an ESE teaching job came available and I went on a virtual interview. I nailed it and I know I did as they even said I interviewed very well. Then I discovered I got passed up again. And I don’t understand why. Now another school wanted me but it required me to move across the state in less than a week. I couldn’t do it. I don’t understand how a rather prestigious school could want me, but this school doesn’t. I don’t know what to do at this point because people on other interviews ask me why this school won’t hire me despite my great resume and references. I need advice.
