I just feel hopeless. I wait and wait checking everyday for any new postings. Finally, a posting in my home district. I anxiously email the principal (again) letting her know my huge interest in the district. I finally get a reply from her and guess what it says! "I know you are anxious to get started on your first teaching job, but the committee will be looking for an experienced teacher" Blah, Blah, Blah, how will I ever get any experience if no one is willing to give me a chance. I am now trying to think of anything else I can possibly do in the fall with a MAT! I just feel completely hopeless. No interviews, no leads...just a lot of time to feel depressed about the whole thing. Guess I'm just needing to vent. It is just really bad to get your hopes up and have them shot down so many times. Sorry for the vent!
