    i just got the call that i've been hired!!! i am so happy!!! it is for a private school so the pay won't come close to public school but i'll be teaching in my own room! with my own students!!! (can you tell i've subbed awhile!) for all you other people searching in those tight markets, take hope from this!!!! i have been very actively looking for work since last march (sending out resumes, checking school & job websites daily and responding to openings, stopping by schools, answering ads, etc) and only had three interviews in all that time despite great grades, subbing experience, etc (the last public school i applied to for a subject specific middle school job told me that they had received over 350 applications!). if you are looking for work, think about re-contacting schools now to see if any openings or long term sub jobs have opened up (that's were i found this job). i guess it happens more often than we think, especially at charters and private schools. i'm praying & pulling for all of you! thank you to all in this forum who've kept my spirits up, given me great advice on job searching and just been there for me when i was too down to talk to other people about being so discouraged! i'll always be grateful! :)
