You’ll get a call–SPED teachers are always in such high demand. This is just a crazy time of year for administrators, what with state testing; at this point in the year, too, they often aren’t sure how many teachers they’ll need for next year. Sit tight. I’ve gone through the teacher interview process twice, and both times I didn’t even get a nibble until May. Things always worked out.

I am from FL, and my sister in law is a teacher there. She said that cyber high schools and middle schools are huge there now, and they are really looking for teachers for that! You’d work from home, might be a huge change compared to in classroom teaching, just a thought 🙂

Agree with above poster.  It’s not that they don’t want to pay you more – I actually think that’s a myth that gets passed around to teachers from teachers with bad interview skills.  🙂  The state pays for your extra education, not the school district.

When I found a job posted that was perfect for me, I went ahead and emailed the principal.  I wouldn’t recommend stalking them, but I did eventually get that job.  However!  It was posted in late April, and interviews weren’t until late June!!  Admins are so busy right now creating the schedule for next year and don’t know how much FTE and who’s leaving until late May, anyway.  Don’t stress.

Can’t speak for Florida, but I know out here in CA I would never even get called for jobs until August/September!  It’s just that a lot of schools don’t know what their numbers will be until then!

Im in VA not FL but my district isn’t even allowed to start the hiring process until May (and that is new this year. it used to be July). I agree with everyone else – the schools are just starting to figure out how mnay teachers they need next year and who is staying/leaving. They dont’ know yet if they have any positions 🙂 I’m guessing this summer will be when most of them will tackle hiring.

wifetobee63:  You will get a call, I agree, SPED teachers are in high demand.

It’s still REALLY early. It’s April. This is typically when jobs go up on school websites. You’ll hear back in May, June, maybe even July.

Just call up the school, send an email to someone like the principal. Tell them you’re really excited about the opportunity to be interviewed, and if they need you to come in, you’re available any time. Be the squeaky wheel!
