Teaching With Possession of Marijuana

Hey all,

So Iím finishing up my student teaching semester, Iíve applied for jobs and everything so far. I feel like Iíve had great experiences, Iíve been coaching high school football for 3 years, volunteer with special needs kids, and have good references.
When I was a freshmen in high school in 2010 I was charged with possession of marijuana. Since then I have only gotten charged with a speeding ticket.

How will this effect my chances of getting a job? Will my employer see this and toss my application aside?



Thanks all!

I think you need to check the laws of your state.

Definitely check the laws in your state. This happened when you were a minor. I can't imagine that would show up (or need to be disclosed) on applications, but call the DOE and ask.

I'd say you are safe.

Cases of minors are sealed at 18 or maybe 21 now. No worries! Be happy!
