Re: Teaching Jobs in Delaware

    I saw that someone mentioned to you. That
    is a great site. Have you tried job fairs? You can often
    view online recruiting schedules. If a school at which you
    really wish to work is going to be recruiting at a fair near
    you, then I would suggest that you make up an impressive
    packet and meet their recruiters in person. (The alternative
    would be to hand-carry into the school, but this way you have
    a chance to talk to them one-one-one.)Several of the better schools absolutely recruit. Another
    responder mentioned Red Clay, Appoquinimink, and Caesar Rodney
    as good schools, and I KNOW that they all recruit. That is
    how I found my job. :)

    Oh! Something else that helped was that I emailed the head of
    personnel from each school with a powerful "cover letter" to
    explain how much I wanted to move to DE, how serious I was
    about relocating, how I'd love to work in a school with a
    great academic reputation, etc. I looked up AYP stats and
    really perused each school's website before I sent each email
    so that I could really personalize them. I had exceedingly
    favorable--and nearly instantaneous--responses. Some of the
    schools had an online application process, so this helped my
    name to be more recognizable in their databases. What do you
    have to lose?

    I wish you the best of luck if you're still hunting for a job.
    I saw that someone said that most schools don't hire until
    later in the summer, but I know that several have already had
    deadlines pass and already done their hiring. Several others
    have deadlines coming soon. I bet you've already applied,
    though. :)
