    Put me down!

    How long have you been trying? Since March, when I learned my school would have a reduction in force.

    How many resumes did you send out? I applied to about twenty positions out of the district and three inside.

    How many interviews or job fairs? Three interviews.

    What general geographic area? Ohio
    And of course what grade and/or subject? 3rd! The position I've had all year! :)

    I'll make it forty. I got two offers from three interviews and am picking one today. I've changed my mind about five times but I think I'm going to have to choose the school that is closer to my home. They are both small school on a seven day period. I'm happy but still torn about the decision. I have to go and sign a contract today so soon there will be no looking back.

    Thanks for all the support.

    Thanks and congrats to all! We made it this far!

    Now, what I want to know is -- which is the hardest part -- interviewing and getting the job OR teaching? :)

    (BTW, I am in Houston, but will be driving 20 miles to a small town near the Galveston area to teach.)

    Congrats Missy99! I think teaching is harder, at least at first...but it gets easier (curriculum wise and such). The kids keep the days crazy but fun. Good luck with everything!!!
