I posted this thread in the New Teachers column because a lot of job tips were being discussed, but I want to make sure experienced teachers see this question, too. I am currently getting everything ready to mail out job applications to school districts. My question is this: If the school hasn't yet posted teaching jobs for the 2006-2007 school year, is it alright to still send in my resume and job packet, along with their application for any anticipated job openings? I don't want to make any HR people mad by sending in my stuff too early, but I want to get them out there and quit worrying about it. Any thoughts?
