@Treasure43: I’m very sorry to hear how difficult this wait has been for you. What do you teach? What part of the world/country are you in? If you’re anywhere near me I’ll keep my eyes and ears open for you.

Oh honey I’m sorry to hear you are having such a hard time πŸ™ I’ll keep your job search in my thoughts.

You are such a kind person. Those kids would be lucky to have you.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I am taking a moment to stop re-freshing my own post, looking for new comments. Ha, what a Friday night, huh?

In any case, I know how stressful the job search can be. Just try to stay one step ahead, making sure all the local schools have your resume on file even if they dont have any posted available positions. 

Just try to focus on the life you are building. It’s never easy in the beginning (trust, student loan repayments will be a part of my entire adult life) but keep focused on the end goal. You guys will get there, together, and will someday look back on these times as frustrating, yes, but al just part of the process.

Good luck!

@Treasure43:  Ohhhh, I’m so sorry your still searching for the job you’ve been dreaming of.  I don’t know if this will help you, but our Principal just sent an e-mail out today hoping to add 2 more classrooms before the start of the school year.  Keep your eye out as the new school year approaches and keep thinking positive thoughts!!!  HUGS!

@Treasure43: Ah, I’m in California. Something is bound to turn up. Keep positive, and check back with schools you’ve interviewed with in the past to see how things are progressing. You never know; their original new hire may flake out on them or things just aren’t a right fit. Even send resumes to schools that haven’t been looking yet, but maybe they will be soon for whatever reason. I’m sure you’re doing a lot of this already but it’s good to have reminders to help us through.

What else are you interested in work-wise? I see that teaching is your passion and what you’ve studied for, and so it is important to you, but if you had to get by with something else, what would be good? Perhaps you’ll have experiences elsewhere that will enrich you all the more until that perfect teaching position arrives.

Just keep trying and searching. If you think about it, you will fail 100% if you never try. If you try, you increase your odds just by that much. Don’t give up! I get these moments too… overloaded and stressed and sometimes close to tears but I always tell myself to not give up. It’s like my little motivation booster. I tell myself, it’s not like you to give up… because giving up is giving up on yourself and that’s not who you are.

In the meantime, maybe check to see if there’s part-time tutoring opportunities.

@Treasure43: Aww I know how you feel. I’ve was substitute teaching this year (Sept – June). We also had to take out of our savings to pay my half of the mortgage. I didn’t want to teach anymore and two days before getting married I got a call offering me an office job, I started a week after the wedding and I love it. I know it’s hard, but something will come up. Yes apply for government things / central education in government if that makes sense. I applied for everything and anything. Sending Good Luck vibes >>>>>>>>>

@Treasure43: I had some friends who were also having some trouble finding teaching jobs, and they had to get a little creative.  One actually taught test prep courses for the SAT, GRE, etc., and it helped her stay afloat financially until she found a regular teaching job.  Another friend taught English lessons for foreign students/workers through a community college.  Good luck!
