Frustration has set in!!! Since January of this year I have sent out over 175 applications for various K - 6 teaching jobs in the state of MN. Definately it is who you know!! I previously taught preschool for 4 years at a private school and have had public school officials tell me that I can't count that as teaching because I did not have to be licensed due to it being a private school (even though I had a degree in early childhood ed) Any how, I am tierd of substitute teaching in 3 different districts and 2 private schools. I have even had the secretaries at schools where I have subbed repeatedly state that they did not want to see my name on the list for full time because I am such a good and reliable substitute. FRUSTRATION!!!!!!! I need medical insurance and can't get it only being a sub. I have had several people look at my resume and said it was perfect but why then am I not getting hired? Am I too old? 43 or what?
