I know the economy is tough, but I got my teaching certification January 2012. I've been on many interviews, and I keep getting denied the job. If I was 22, I'd keep on keepin' on. However, I went back to school as an adult, and i had to take a desk job, because sorry, but you cannot survive on substitute teaching without taking another night job (unless your spouse is helping to pay your bills, which is not my case). I don't know how much longer I can keep looking. It's a shame, because I worked so hard for this certification. I love teaching. But I have a life to live. Advice? Stories?
