Method & Theory

Re: Teaching Shortage Crock!!!
That's fine if the principal will see you.....

    in the past I've had principals tell me to my face that they
    cannot take my letter of intent/resume/whatever. They're not
    allowed to. Other places here in Michigan have very strict
    procedures for applying. Most places that I know of.It's a good idea to sub in a district you're interested in.
    That way, you will get around to different schools, experience
    different grade levels, etc. And, it gives you a reason to be
    in the building, and an opportunity to introduce yourself to
    the principal and give a short spiel on yourself. That's
    probably the best way for them to put a name with a face.
    That, along with your stellar reputation for being a great sub
    who is requested by many teachers!!!!!!
