I received a call this afternoon from a GREAT school district in NJ. I'm absolutely thrilled. I know it's still early in the hiring season so already having a interview is a great sign and ego booster, especially because NJ has always been a competitive market. I'm certified to teach English and recently finished graduate school, but was briefly looking into other career paths (re: PR and editing for universities) since I know public K-12 education is a tough market. It would be my dream to teach secondary English so I truly hope this time works for me. Wish me luck, everyone! The interview is Tuesday. To everyone job hunting: STAY POSITIVE. Even though it's a tough economy, there are still openings and people will be needed to fill them!
