    Are you unhappy with your current job? Do you just want a change? Are you applying for your first job? A new job after taking some time off? I think it will be interesting to hear everyone's story.

    I have a job in a preschool (first year) but my certification is Elementary 1-6. I am always looking to see if something comes up where I can work with children in that age group. Also, I work part-time and would prefer to find a full-time position with benefits.

    I graduated May 2010 and am looking for my first teaching job...preferably full time, but I will take part time and find a 2nd job in the area in hopes of the teaching job becoming full time in the future.

    My position might be cut so I am keeping my eyes open for a job but am not "actively" job hunting. My resume isn't even updated with the school I've been at for three years, but I'm keeping my eyes open on the general market for my certification area just in case I am RIF'ed.

    Well...I graduated in 2009. Been subbing since. Landed a LTS job in December which will last until the end of this school year. The teacher I'm replacing is taking more time off, so I was promised the LTS job for next year. But then...budget cuts...The district is laying teachers off at the end of this school year. The teachers who are losing their jobs will get the LTS jobs, so I have no job here for next year. Hubby was offered an opporunity to relocate to another state, so we are taking it. Looking for a job there for the next school year. I already had one interview & was told I should have a job when they assign contracts in late June. We shall see...

    Unhappy with current position and slight chance of reassignment to a different position.

    RIF'd and seems unlikely my position will be open again as they are making cuts in the department.

    LARGE class size with no assistance, low pay with more responsibility, no union to protect us on these things

    Very unhappy in current classroom. No dependable help from my assistant teacher who resents me (for being her lead teacher replacement because of a grant -- needed a four year degree). Too many children (19 preschoolers) to handle by myself most of the time! Director does not help with the situation. Also I'm only part time, so all that added together makes for one horrible work situation!!! :dizzy::(

    looking for FT first job! subbing for last few years. With all budget cuts & layoffs, I've been told I should probably considered other employment options. I didn't choose the wrong career ..just bad timing!
