As the school year comes to a close, I am frantically putting together my licensing paperwork to be transferred to another state. I have also started looking at jobs in the surrounding area where we be living. It is very exciting, but at the same time, there are so many jobs that I can apply for – it is important for me to send my resume out everywhere in order to assure that I will hear back from schools. Most jobs say they require a minimum of 3 years teaching experience, which is not possible as a newer teacher! I have been subbing for about six months, and taught in a preschool setting while my license was being processed. I remember the teaching program coordinators saying to “just apply anyway” because all schools would like more experienced teachers, but you can be lucky.
Since it is Slice of Life Tuesday, I’ll write a short poem about job searching and relocating,
