How many districts did you apply to? I'm wondering because I know that I have applied to way too many. After trying to go the ACP route last year and not getting a single interview from the 28 districts I applied to, I went a little crazy this year. I'm sure that my references are wishing they hadn't agreed to write me recommendations. School started over a week ago and I still don't have a job. I was counting and realized I have applied to 73 districts around the state. I'm totally willing to move if I have to because I can't go another year like this. I'm fully certified, but it's in areas that are saturated (elementary and social studies). I also wonder if my M.Ed. is putting me out of contention since they have to pay me more and my bachelors isn't in education. So how many districts have you applied to? Have I gone completely overboard?
