I can't express how frustrated and disheartened I am right now. I went on over THIRTY interviews (many of which I made it to the final round) this summer and I still don't have a job. I've done everything I can think of to land a job and still nothing. Anytime I was given feedback or an explanation for not getting a job I was told the same line of someone else was a better fit. It's demoralizing! There is a part of me that wants to quit entirely. This experience has left a sour taste in my mouth regarding the field of education. So many districts claim to want the best teachers but seem more concerned about if I'll "fit in" with the staff than if I'll be an effective teacher or not. I'm at a loss right now. I don't know what to do and my credential program doesn't have any suggestions for me either. The people I know in education just tell me to keep trying but it's hard when I'm not given any real feedback on how to make improvements. I honestly don't know what to do here.
