I got my teaching certificate in 2010. I got a job as a para last year and was RIFed 4 days before school ended, this put me on the "preferred hire" list for the district. At 9am, I was called for a 11:30am interview. At 12:15pm, 15 mins after leaving the interview, I found out that I got a 5th grade math position in an awesome, high achieving school. Yay!!!
I taught for 11 years before moving to a different state. I got certified where I am now before I even moved to the state. Two years later, and I'm still trying to get a job. This is the third summer I have tried to get a position so maybe the third time is the charm!
