I would like to start off by saying we do need more male teachers in the elementary field (at least in my area). This is only meant to be a discussion post. What is the job search like for men vs women? Do men find jobs in the education field more quickly? Do schools lean more towards hiring a male candidate vs a female? I am trying to word this in a way that does not sound offensive. That is not my intention at all! I am only genuinely curious as to what others have experienced or observed.
