    Hi there,
    I've been sending out applications and resumes etc for about two weeks. I'm relocating this summer and am traveling to the area where I'm moving next week and said so in my cover letter in hopes of getting some interviews set up.

    Some people have stated they have no openings for next year; others have said there are no "official" openings yet and they can't meet with anyone until there are; and a couple others said, "You are welcomed to stop by our school, and I encourage you to look online for posting of teaching positions."

    I think it's a good idea to make the contact in person, but should I make an appointment? Or since it says drop in, should I really just drop in?

    Thanks for any insight.

    How about something along the lines of:

    "I would LOVE to! But, since I'll be traveling to the area for such a short time, I wonder if I could make an appointment? I would hate to catch you at a bad time."

    I second the making an appointment. Even if you get to meet with someone for 10 minutes and tour the school after.
