dwi cant get an interview

I have a charge of dwi on my record from when I was 18 (30 years ago). I pleaded guilty and it was lowered to a Careless and Imprudent driving conviction w 6 months probation. I am a new teacher and none of this came up on my record during my degree background checks. I found out the hard way that this was on my record. I did not know about it! Since then I disclose it on every application. I have applied for literally almost a hundred different teaching jobs posted from March til now, but no one even calls. I know districts are not supposed to discriminate, but I am not sure what to do. Do I write a letter to the director of HR explaining the circumstances? ....jobless in Missouri

Since the incident occurred several years ago, I would look into getting it expunged from your record.
