    I was unable to attend job fair b/c of bed rest...fun. I made bf go and get me a list of schools that were hiring. I sent my cover letter and resume via email to the schools. Of course, I have yet to hear anything...
    I didn't put that I was on bed rest in my cover letter, so that i why I was unable to attend the fair. Should I send another resume/cover letter via real mail explaining it?
    It's just so frustrating...ugh...I really wanted to go to the job fair :(

    In other news...one of my former co-workers called today and asked about an event I ran by myself last year (the other teacher went on leave of absence for like 3 months for eating disorder...they let me go, not her...ugh!)...and said that SAME TEACHER was out for the SAME reason again!! I noticed they were hiring for my position again at that school...and her position (was posted on sheet from fair). :|

    I think sending a paper copy in addition to the e-mails would be good, but I don't know if I'd mention anything about why you weren't at the job fair.

    I'd send in a paper copy of your resume/cover letter to each of those schools. I wouldn't mention why you weren't able to attend the job fair or being on bedrest. Would you reapply for your position at the old school?

    I don't think I would mention the bedrest.

    But I might send a new cover letter and resume, reitertating how much you want to work there, and mentioning that you were, unfortunatley, unable to attend the job fair.

    I agree with Alice. I wouldn't mention the bedrest part but show your passion for working in these districts. Boo to your old P.
