txteach, is there much in the way of secondary ELA open in your area? SC, I saw your post. Thanks for putting that out there! I've got a good 12 jobs to apply for/resumes to send tomorrow because of the thread you started! And that's just a start. I need to look at some districts that don't use the Region 10 Job Network, like Garland, which you mentioned. I know they had some ELA positions open a while back when I was just applying in districts around me, but I haven't checked recently, since I widened my search radius.
