I have been job searching since 2011. I have done several long term subs and 2 para jobs (part year hire) but am still looking for the real deal. Last Tuesday I got a call out of the blue from a P needed a sub. Interviewed on Tuesday and she called me on Friday to let me know. I will be a special education teacher with a kindergarten class until the end of the year. It is very possible that the teacher may not return and so this could lead into a permanent position (for this year) I am so excited. I love SpEd and love the little ones. The principal got my name from HR since I have an application on file and she talked to one of my former principals and she recommended me. Never give up!
