Okay, so a few weeks ago I applied for a 3rd grade position at a school. I emailed the P, and his almost immediate response was basically Thanks, but no thanks. Okay so a 1st grade and another 3rd grade position posted a week or so after the initial posting. Well, I received 2 separate emails saying the same thing, that after reviewing my qualifications, he cannot interview me at this time. WHAT?!?!? I have tutored and subbed in this district for 2 years. I have gotten some great feedback on my resume and cover letter from others, but for some reason this one principal doesn't see what everyone else does. I emailed him back asking for feedback that would make me a more impressive candidate in his view. We'll see if he responds. I also sent out an email to a P (who used to be my AP in HS) who has wanted to hire me on 2 different occasions (1 was before I graduated college, though I had completed my student teaching...the job would have started the first week of Dec, and I didn't graduate until Dec 18. 2nd was the summer after my first year of teaching...he wanted me to teach 4,5,6 English and Social Studies, but I didn't have my certification for 5,6) to get his opinion on my cover letter and resume so we'll see. The bad thing about this whole situation is that my dd will be going to this school in August so I'll be seeing him on a regular basis. Ugh! I just wanna tell him what he missed out on.
