I finally have kids that fit in both categories! DD22 got her bachelors in 2011 and her teaching credential this year. She is trying to decide if she will do her masters this fall, or defer it for a year. It's only 2 quarters, since she already had a year towards it in her credential program. Right now she is job hunting for a teaching job (jr. or senior high). I'm sure she'd appreciate any good vibes you want to throw her way. She was hired to teach 6 weeks of summer school, which ended yesterday. That gave her a little experience, got her name out into that district and a letter of rec. from the principal. She has put out 42 applications so far, had 3 interviews (thanks but no thanks) and gotten 2 rejection w/out interview emails. She has an interview today and had a great phone screening interview yesterday and was told to be expecting a formal interview invitation next Thurs. If anything else, this is teaching her to be flexible and humble! Originally she only wanted to teach High school in the Sacramento area. Now she has said she'll teach junior or senior and has extended her search as far north as Lake Tahoe, south to Monterey, and east to Fresno. Here's hoping a principal see's her potential and gives her a chance!
