I'm not getting anywhere in the teaching department. Seems there aren't many schools looking to hire a teacher with certification but no classroom time. Even when I complete my Master's in Education, it still looks as though landing a teaching job will be tough because every position I look into wants a minimum of three years teaching experience. Not sure how they expect new teachers to get teaching experience if nobody wants to give them a shot. But, that's a whole other thing. Anyhow, I thought I'd try a different route and look into military academies. I shot a resume off to one of them for a non-teaching position they had advertised and got an email asking when I could come in for an interview. That was yesterday. The place is about a six-hour drive from me, so I told them I'm available anytime this coming week and am waiting to hear back. At the least, it's a job in an education environment where my prior military and law enforcement background can be blended with my education degree. Has anyone else done anything similar? Am wondering if this might be a good way to cut my teeth, so to speak, and improve my resume to the point of maybe someone giving me a shot at a classroom of my own sometime down the road.
