I have no full-time teaching experience and I am pregnant and due in late October. So it would be my first year. I'm in NY, where it's pretty much impossible to get a job in a public school, but last year I got many calls from Catholic schools. There is also a brand new public school opening up that I would be eligible to be hired at. Thing is, I already have a soon to be 2 year old, it would be my first year and I'm not exactly looking forward to my first 2 months teaching ever being almost ready to give birth. I'm thinking most principals would pass on me, especially since I would be leaving for maternity leave right in the beginning of the school year and it's my first year, so it would be pretty stressful. I would be interested in maybe teaching later in the school year though. So, would you bother sending out resumes for the upcoming school year? Or just wait until mid-year?
