Landing a teaching job in Delaware simply boils down to not
what you know but whom you know. Cronyism, nepotism,
favoritism, etc., come into play. By law, school systems must
publish job vacancies via newspapers, periodicals, and online;
however, most already know whom they are going to hire despite
going through a few token interviews. Several of these schools
are not run by competent administrations but by local teachers
who dictate policy. Good luck to you all and keep plugging
away. Dale Henderson Seaford DE
