I received that phone call from the principal today. Didn't even get to have an interview. He said there were too many candidates that had more skills and experience. This whole lack of teaching thing is really getting me down lately.
I decided to apply for the other board in my area as well again today. Spent some time updating everything on applytoeducation and called the HR lady. She said their supply list is full. The only way to have them look at your application once the supply list actually does open again is to have a reference from a principal in the board. I have a principal's reference but not within THAT board.
Do I take time off from potential jobs in my board in order to volunteer with the other school board to hopefully get a principal's reference in order to hopefully get a supply position if they decide to hire again? Is it even worth it?
There are days when I just want to leave the profession completely. It's what I want to do so badly but I can't wait another 3-4 years in this same position.
