What happened to "Oh! Science and math teachers will always have a job. They're in such high demand!" Um...I'm thinking that's a lie, just like the so-called "teaching shortage"?? Am I the only one thinking this? I've called around to numerous schools, in my district (one of the worst districts in the U.S.; no one wants to live/work here. Fyi - I'm not here by choice. Lol. Times are hard right now so this new grad has to bum free rent off of the parents. But anyway, TMI for this thread ), and no one is hiring a math or science teacher. I can teach any level math or science classes; that's not helping me either. Really? I thought every district was in dire need of us? My district websites states "math, science and special ed" as high needs area and they're looking for teachers. Could have fooled me. None of the high schools need us. Apparently no teachers are needed...anywhere. What gives?
