I am really interested in working for DODEA, but have heard it is very difficult to get hired on. I would love any feedback about how I may be able to improve my chances.

I have a Masters of Education; I have seven years teaching experience in Math/Science and ELA at the elementary levelk; I was an Instructional Specialist for my district for two years; and I am currently in my third year as an Assistant Principal.

I am certified Generalist EC-8, ESL EC-8, and Principal EC-12. I am also a veteran with 5 point preference. Am I in a good position to land a position, or do I need to add something? Would adding certs improve my chances? If so, which ones should I focus on? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
