I know I am in the applicant pool for at least one district. But, this is what I have been told:
have been receiving a lot of questions regarding our hiring process and
I wanted to give you some information. Elementary positions will be
filled using the applicants in this pool
all summer. Principals have all summer to fill their vacant positions.
Some will interview right away while some will wait until almost the
beginning of the school year. It is up to the individual Principal as
to whom they would like to interview. If you attended our Teacher
Recruitment Fair the Principals do have that information.All interview
invitations will come to you via email, so please be
sure to check your email often. Once we are done interviewing from this
pool we will send out an email to all applicants them know that we are
closing this pool.
Hopefully this information helps answer any questions you might have had.
So, I wait....

My path as an educator started out very traditional. I taught 1st grade for 3 years and 3rd grade for 1 year. I loved teaching but wanted a family. So with the birth of my son, I stayed home. 2 years later, my daughter came along. I loved being a stay at home mom, but knew that living on one income (my husband is also a teacher) would not be a forever option. As my youngest was off to Kindergarten, I was ready to go back to the classroom.
Trouble was, the bottom dropped out of the economy and teachers were being pink slipped left and right! There were no full time teaching positions. So for a period of 5 years, I worked as an intervention teacher (grade K to 6) and substitute teacher ( K to 12) . I taught the Meet The Masters program too. No contracts, no guarantee of a pay check but lots of great experiences!
Now, I have been under contract for the last year and a half as a READ 180 Teacher and I love it. Sadly, have been pink slipped for the 2nd time and I do not know where or what I will be teaching next year! I am while I know I will likely have a job somewhere, the uncertainty of the last 7 years has taken a toll. I have no "home". I have no team, no Professional Learning Community (PLC)
This blog will now serve two purposes! It will be my PLC: a place to share my experiences, my faliures and (hopefully) many successes. This will still be the place to share my creations. I love paper crafting and will continue to share my work with you.
So, there you have it. I am off an running( again)!
