Great news!!! I got a job in Nebraska. In the 2007-08 school year, I will be teaching at Gering High School, which is in the Panhandle of Western Nebraska just to the south of Scottsbluff. We are planning to go out there once school has finished here in June to find a place to live and also visit the school and the Principal. I had the phone interview two weeks ago and had begun to give up hope but they called me today and offered me the job
I have to say this job search was tough. I applied to over 40 schools and had only four interviews, In my previous job searches I only filled out 20-25 applications before I found a job. Finding a job as a Social Studies teacher is so hard because there are so many Social Studies teachers and not that many jobs.
Plus, I think that when the people in Nebraska see a person from New York applying for a job way out in Nebraska they assume the person is not serious. In this case, I was serious and, right now, I am happy I found a job. I hope things will go well and that I will stay in Gering a long time
