Hi everyone! I'm going to be moving from LA to San Diego over the summer and am looking for a teaching job down there. The problem is, I would like to have a job set up before I move, but there are no current job openings posted yet (way too early). Has anyone had experience/success with contacting principals or department heads before jobs were posted, just to get in touch with them and let them know, "I'm interested in working in your school, I know you don't have any openings posted yet, but here's my resume in case something opens up"? If you've done it, how early did you make contact (Jan/Feb or later in the spring)? I want to be proactive and get myself out there instead of waiting for openings, but I've never been in that position before and I'm not exactly sure how to go about it. Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
