I feel defeated! I really thought I’d find a teaching job for next year but I didn’t. I was either too nice for HS, didn’t have the right licensure for a sevre handicap room, or I kept getting called a “kid” so I’m assuming someone else had more experience than myself. So I’m giving up and going to sign up for subbing. I’m sad I am not going to get benefits and I am very sad that I’ll be losing the sick days I wasnt going to use. I really wanted to save all my sick days so I could take a long maternity leave. Oh well… I need money and experience so in I go. Just needed to vent!

I’m so sorry it didn’t work out for you. I’m a firm believer that things happen for a reason. Although we may not realize what that reason is when they happen perhaps they will soon. Keep your head up and don’t lose heart! ::Hugs::

Subbing isn’t so bad – a friend of mine subbed part time for multiple years quite happily while he went to grad school. It sounds like the experience will really help you get that full-time job. In the meantime, you can plan your wedding on your days off.

I’ll bet as an experienced teacher you’ll get asked to sub A LOT, which is good for the pocketbook!

My good friend recently moved to Arizona and was in a similar situation to you. After a long semester of subbing and a longer summer of job hunting, she got the teaching job of her dreams 🙂
I am sorry it didn’t work out but I know the experience you will get as a sub (as stacymarie says,a LOT) will help you develop into a fantastic teacher!
