There has been a huge glut of teachers in nearly all specialties in the whole state of California for years now. All of a sudden there are a few news articles the past few weeks claiming there is a "shortage." I am a credentialed teacher in CA in several subjects who hasn't been looking for work in K-12 for a few years, so I am curious to hear any first-hand accounts from folks who have looked this season, and found it easier than in the past or just as difficult as ever, or someone who may know the hiring numbers of different districts. I don't believe for a second that there is a "shortage" all of a sudden, and of course subject area matters as always, but if there is indeed evidence there is less of a glut than there has been, perhaps I will throw my hat in the ring again for next year. Thanks.
