Re: Desperate to teach
miss penny

    Brandee, have you filled out the on-line application for
    Hardin Co.? You can also look for job openings on that site.
    I just recently moved from Ft. Knox, KY to Greenville, NC
    (husband is military). When I applied to sub in Hardin Co.,
    it took several months. I had to call several times before I
    was even considered for the sub position. I would try
    applying on post as well as off post. I would suggest, if I
    were you, that you make a trip to the HCBOE and speak to
    someone in person. If you applied on-line, there may have
    been a problem and they might not have received your
    application. Good luck in your job search.
