    Just wanted to send some encouragement to those still looking for a job- don't give up yet! I know my last district (in So. CA) started school today and had at least 4 subs in classrooms because teachers didn't show up. I know they had at least 4 teachers sign contract and never report to work (actually, 2 reported for 1 day of training and then skipped town). Then the high school didn't have a math teacher, so they 'stole' one from the middle school - so the middle school needed that on top of a special day class teacher (I think that person also had signed a contract and then resigned).
    My new district (here in VA) still had openings for a Business Ed and 2 girls PE teachers as of last Thursday.
    There are still things available, just keep looking and don't let it get you down!

    How do you not show up!!!!!! I can't imagine!!!! It's so tough to get a job as it is...WOW!! I can't even fathom that right now!! Call me naive but...seriously...sign a contract and not show!!

    OKAY...anyway...Stuff will still open for all of you who are still looking!! I had three interviews within 5 days the week before school started (last year)! There was plenty more open after I accepted my position! Stay calm...it'll come when the time is right! I was freaking out too...but it all came around!:2up:
