    So...I'm looking through this job site for all kinds of school district job postings. It's the ONLY site all my districts in my area require an applicant to go through. There was one posting for a special ed substitute paying $125/day & it said a Master's degree is desired. OK, even though it's not mandatory, this is THE FIRST time I've seen a posting say a Master's is desired...for a sub position.

    I personally have a Masters, but wow...! As if getting a job isn't tough enough already! :eek:

    It's also special ed. So there's a chance they're looking for someone who has experience with special ed or at least teaching so they don't have to interview people who are just looking for a job.

    That's what I was thinking. Also, maybe they are a district that will consider these subs for permanent jobs in the future?
