I taught in a local school system right after finishing my undergrad degree. My second year teaching was too much to handle for me emotionally etc. My husband (at the time) was deployed and my son was going through medical issues and our new principal seemed to think I was an idiot from the moment she met me. She was very hard on me and I did everything she asked me to do but it was never enough. I decided to leave shortly after the school year started and entered a MA program online. I hated to quit but knew that no matter how well my students did or how I did in other aspects she would ultimately fire me. I would come up with grade level ideas and strategies and when they were adopted by the grade level she would swear I wasn't smart enough to come up with the idea and that another teacher had and tell me to stop lying... grrrr. Anyway, I then went to work for 2 local community colleges part time and lost one job due to budget cuts and the other I changed positions because the requirements changed and I was no longer qualified to teach it and the position I changed to had no hours after a semester due to lack of budget. Both systems have offered to call me if anything changes, but really who knows. I have been frantically applying for jobs with no real response. I have gotten a few generic emails, but am not being called for interviews. Out of 250 applications I have been on 3 interviews. I don't know if there is a problem with my resume, my cover letter (I use different ones for community colleges and k-12 systems) or if I am just having no luck. Suggestions?
