Hi, everyone, thought I would just post how bad things are. I have been certified since last May in Social Studies 8-12 and Math 4-8 here in Texas. I have been subbing since October in Corpus Christi ISD and I have interviewed several places here and elsewhere in the state with no luck at all. I've tried places where I know people but I just don't seem to know the right ones. No matter what I do I lose, and I know I can't do anything else, I have to teach, it's all I can picture myself doing from 9 to 5. I will do anything, move anywhere, to get a regular high school teaching job, but no one anywhere seems to care, they would just rather hire someone else who lives closer or has worked longer. I really don't know what to do, I feel like my whole life has been a waste, I have to get away, and I have to get a full job to help a dependent. I am really in a mess and I'm open to all suggestions. I am planning to get certified via computer test for Science 8-12 next week if that helps anything.
