Re: New Castle County: any jobs?

    I am a Wilmington, Delaware teacher. Here is my advice that I
    can give you. Put applications into the school districts
    offices. Then, send your resume and cover letter to the
    principals. The principals in most schools do the hiring, so if
    you put the resume in their hands it makes their lives a lot
    easier. I got several interviews, and I was told because that
    my resume made it to their desk.
