For the teachers in the house..

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

My sister is still needing to pass one more certification test and just returned from the Peace Corps where she was teaching for the past few years. She is looking to find a teaching assistant job until she passes the test needed for NY or decide on grad school.

 

Any ideas on how to approach this? Are there teaching recruiters out there? How did you get your job? She has responded to several posts on craigs list but I always feel that those are kind of a longshot. I could be wrong.

 

Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance...

In PA there is PAreap.net and there she can find any job offers that are available in the pa area. I am ASSuming that there is a nyreap and so forth. Also check the districts website where she wants to work there she will find job opportunities.

It may be different down here, but we usually just apply online with the different districts and then send resumes to the principals of each school.

 

Our state also has education service centers that are broken up by the different regions of our state where all the jobs available are listed.

 

I don't think my answer helped you much...sorry :)

I would tell her to call or apply to different districts... becoming a teacher is so complicated, or so it seems... I am trying and it is like hurdling brick walls... but she will get there! Definitely call different districts and see if they have openings...

in most areas you have to send in applications for each seperate district, they usually have the details of their application process on the district website.

i can only tell you how i did it 2 yrs ago when i needed a job closer to home: i checked out the good districts w/in a 15 mile radius, filled out any online application, but also sent a resume to every principal, superintendent and director of curriculum in each district, even if there weren't any specific job postings. i sent out 70+ resumes, but b/c i sent it to the director of curriculum (which not many people do), i was called in for an interview and subsequently beat out 400 other people for a job.

i've heard that in jersey there are between 300-500 resumes per job posting.

good luck to her!
