A word or two on the Teacher Hiring Center application process: Since June I've applied to over 20 schools on line; I've not had a single inquiry from them. Not one!
Am I employable? At the school I was excessed from in June I was a member of the Inquiry Team, advisor to several clubs, originator of a successful book give-away, licensed in two different subjects, the initiator of three Advanced Placement classes, had a passing rate of over 90% on the Global Regents exam, success on the AP exams and described as an excellent teacher repeatedly.
But despite all that, or perhaps because of it, I have not had a single interview since using the system!
