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.
