Hi everyone, first I just want to thank those of you that responded to my posting. I really appreciate the advice and it has actually helped. I'm not going to give up no matter what I have to do. My next question/dilemma I have is this: as some of you know, I graduated in 2005 with my master's degree. I have had no teaching experience since than except for student teaching. Like I mentioned before, subbing is not something that will work for me...financially and there is definitely no way I will survive. A lot of schools do not hire unless you had some teaching experience despite the fact that you have a degree, let alone a masters. What can I do? Anyone ever been in this position? What did you do? Any suggestions?
