I'm getting very discouraged after going to another job fair. There are so many applicants for elementary ed. and very few positions in this state. If there are positions, they usually are filled internally. I have my foot in the door at one district because I'm a building substitute teaching position at one school (I'm there everyday and just found out what class I'll be in when I go in that morning). But, there doesn't seem to be any positions available. I'm hoping that more positions will open up when the school board meets at the end of this month. I've also heard that many teachers are hired in August. Ugh...I just needed to vent! I changed fields to teaching and have a Masters in Elementary Education so it's really discouraging! I'm thinking about getting another certification (maybe special ed) to make myself more marketable, but that's a really popular area now too!
