Re: Social Studies Teachers in Colorado

    I echo the frustration. I have started to look for a job for
    next school year and have a M.Ed from the University of
    Florida, 3 years out-of-state teaching experience (all three
    years I sponsored NHD and my students were STATE CHAMPS all
    three years), have a ton of continuing ed under my belt
    etc...and I can't even get an interview at some schools here.
    When I do get an interview they are more interested in whether
    I can coach than whether I am a great social studies teacher -
    a very sorry thing to say about the education of the area.The competition seems to be in hiring the best coach (and
    hopefully and okay teacher - vs. a great teacher).
