Hi, I just moved to Delaware in June and applied for jobs
in every New Castle County school district. I did not get
one phone call for an interview. I was highly disappointed
because I am a certified CT teacher and was in the process
of obtaining DE Certification. I have taught Middle School
for 7 years in an Urban school. I have a degree in Spanish
and History and an M.S. in Education. I am not sure how
they do their hiring.
