No Job Stress

So I've tried holding back, but it's nearly impossible at this point.

I've been trying for months now to secure a job as a new teacher. I've been interviewed on television for my work tutoring, I passed my credential tests with decent enough grades and scores, and I even stayed on long term AFTER to help out at my site I was at because I loved working with the staff there and they were happy of my work. Most importantly, I love working with students and helping them succeed!

Now though, I don't have a position that's mine, nor a school site. I've had almost no interviews for sites, even after applying to dozens of schools. I know budgets are tight and even subject matter classes are different due to needs. But seriously? It's gotten to the point where I don't even want to teach anymore: not because I hate it or hate children, but because I can't seem to catch a break with work. It's stressing me out a lot, and even just getting out of bed is hard sometimes in the morning. My family is worried about my stress I'm letting build up over it, but it's very hard to manage.

Any possible advice to help relax? I know things come in time, but my family needs support and help too. I don't want to settle and give up to have money or move forward, but what can I do?

Things change. Be ready when it happens. Keep getting up expecting and keep looking. I know that the act of just doing the search has already turned into a job unto itself. Are you signed up to work as a supply/relief teacher? You know that opens to opportunities as a way to have your foot in the door.

there are tons of job openings for teachers AND subs up here in Northern NY.

I am kind of amazed at the small class sizes, too. I might even sub this winter, depends if I feel like it. I kind of miss the students, and they are probably a lot more manageable here.

Good luck in your job search!

No, in California sadly. I'm trying my best, yet hasn't gone too well lately. I've had a school tell me to apply to be an instructional assistant (again), but it's not what I really want to do. I love teaching, not just helping. And they would lower my pay by more than 2/3's, if I was lucky. I do appreciate the encouragement though, it's just been rough.

So sorry the job situation there is hard. Utah and Nevada are short on teachers. Keep trying!
