I have a question for everyone. I live in Connecticut and we apply online through the school district's website. Well, I have applied to 24 schools and have not heard a peep. I know it is really, really hard out there but this is extremely frustrating. Just an interview would be nice at this point. For practice if nothing else! My questions is, do you think I should follow-up with the principals with a quick email after I send my application through the district site. I am a career changer and graduated in Dec 2009 and I am not sure how all this works. I don't want to be a pest but I do want a job. Should I also just take a shot and start emailing Ps where there are no job openings currently. I just don't know if they view this as a bother?? Any advice is appreciated!
