    I called a school district that told me ACP teachers are their last resort-me. Well I took a chance to call about a Math position and was asked to come in to "talk". Fortunately, I came prepared and was told after a brief conversation she had 4 principals in the other room she wanted me to interview with. They are willing to give me a PIP (provisional intern permit). Well I interviewed and within an hour my references were called. In less than two hours I got a job offer. I still can't believe it. Thank you to everyone who posts their thoughts and opinions. It is a middle school math position (not sure exact grade-have to call the principal tomorrow and sign my contract). This is the best forum. I thank God I found it!

    Good luck to all those still searching. Don't be afraid to call those districts. Even though I had turned in my application two weeks ago and noted I was in the process of becoming credentialed in math, I wasn't even on their radar. Be agressive, it doesn't hurt to call. Don't let your name slip through the cracks like mine almost did.

    Thanks everyone. It was hard giving my boss one day notice, but my boss completely understood. I still can't believe in less than two hours I had an unexpected interview and job offer that fast.

    Thanks Alice, I am sure I will call upon you!
