    I've been teaching preschool for two years. However, this semester I had to student teach (for my masters), since I was a career change student.
    I sent out a few resumes and went on a round of interviews for one school. I was hired by them and accepted it:)!

    TeacherJ--Congrats to you too! I'm glad you went with that one. No you can relax (sort of) and start the planning. There were recent posts in the kinder section with great info. I think it is under Freddy.

    How long have you been trying? I've had a job since I moved here, but my program was cut last year and my choice was to take a 5-6 sped job or commute a long time to stay with pre-k. I chose the commute. Commute is killing me. So I decided to see what was out there. Will be cutting my daily bus ride from about 2:40 mins (and two buses and a train- to 1 bus and about 19 mins each way!)
    How many resumes did you send out? Just sent out one.
    How many interviews or job fairs? One interview- no job fairs. Learned my lesson about the CPS job fair- not the best option if you are already in the system.
    What general geographic area? Chicago Public Schools
    And of course what grade and/or subject? Early Childhood Special Education.

    How long have you been trying? I've been looking on and off for about two years. I've been wanting to move to another school with better conditions. This year was very tough and I seriously started looking. I updated my resume and I think it took less than a month to get the interview of my future new job.
    How many resumes did you send out?I sent out 3 resumes.
    How many interviews or job fairs? I went to one interview.
    What general geographic area? Chicago Charter School
    And of course what grade and/or subject?I'm moving from Middle School Math to Freshman Algebra at a High School Charter School

    South Texas

    Are any of you around south Texas looking for jobs? I have found that there are a ton of high school jobs and hardly any elementary. It is very scary. I spent a year at Catholic School and will not go back until my skin is thick and I retire.

    Worst experience ever with parents.
