    After many months, resumes, personally delivering and emailing P's for over 35 classroom teaching positions, I managed to get an inclusion aide position. It's a start and it's in my dream district.


    How long have you been trying? Since January of this year.
    How many resumes did you send out? Over 35 resumes and 2 county wide online applications.
    How many interviews or job fairs? 1 University jobfair, one 4th gr. interview and 1 aide interview.
    What general geographic area? Northern Illinois
    And of course what grade and/or subject? Inclusion Aide for 5th gr. student.

    That's odd. Let's hope they are the ones that didn't list their states!

    I've been talking with a couple of teachers that moved to Texas from Florida & had no luck finding a teaching job there. There is one specifically that is more than highly qualified to teach bilingual, math & science from elementary through high school with 5 yrs experience & in the 2 yrs she was in Florida had no luck finding a job. She moved here about a month ago, has only taken the EC-4 & has landed a teaching job with one of the best districts in the DFW area.

    Wow am I actually posting in this thread?

    How long have you been trying? Since about April of last year.

    How many resumes did you send out? Dozens and dozens.

    How many interviews or job fairs? 2

    What general geographic area? The northern California Bay Area (Vallejo)

    And of course what grade and/or subject? Language Arts support for grades 4/5 (from what I understand, lol!)

    I sent out somewhere around 80 resumes. I had two interviews and got offered the job the day after the second interview (I was expecting to go through many more!)
    I'm going to be teaching 7thgrade social studies!- Northern Wisconsin! :) (My first teaching job!!!)

    I am from the Elgin Area up there,is that where you will be teaching. Florida stinks as far as the education system goes,I was so advanced when I came doen in 8th grade that they had to boost me in advanced stuff,and up north I was just an average student....I might move back up when I get my degree..who knows
