Hi there! I am finishing up my last semester of classes. So I will be student teaching in the fall, and graduating in December (God willing). I recently found out that a local school (about 20 miles away) will be looking for two teachers for the next school year or following school year. I live in rural North Dakota and jobs are hard to come by concidering that when a teacher gets a job it is usually for life. Anyway, I asked my counselor if I should look into the positions. His response was no, and that I will be most likely subbing when I get my degree. I didn't come out of his office feeling too wonderful!! So could someone give me advice. I would appriciate it. I don't know if there is any point in contacting the school now. I thought maybe if I contacted the school, then they would maybe ask me to student teach there as well. Is this dumb of me?????? I like to keep my ducks in a row generally in life, and waiting till I get my degree to look for a job seems dumb. Please inform me I am jumping ahead or what? Thanks!!!
