    Calm Down - Unfortunatley, many teachers, especially that 1st
    year, tend to not get hired until a week, day, or even after
    school has started. Many principals right now are finishing
    up last year, looking at student enrollment numbers for next
    year, and taking vacation. Keep being diligent. Go show up
    at a school with a resume even if there is not an opening
    there yet. It will let that principal put a name to your
    face and show him/her that you are truly interested in
    teaching for them. When an opening does come up, be there
    right away and let them know that you are interested. Try
    looking at innercity or lower income schools since sometimes
    there is a higher teacher turnover at these schools. Good
    luck !! Enjoy your summer. The school year will soon start
    and then you will be swamped with things to do.
