I am away in Georgia attending a family wedding but I had a chance to look at my Department of Education email. Not surprisingly, the applications and resumes I sent out listing my accomplishments in the school system (lots of advanced placement teaching experience, running a college office, sitting on every committee known to the universe, winning awards) aren't getting too many responses.
What I did receive was an email from DOE telling Absent Teacher Reserves we will receive our September assignments on Thursday; interviews for leftover vacancies start on September 15 and weekly rotation begins in the middle of October.
This is my first year as a teacher in excess. I have attempted to actually try the open market and now the excess staff selection system with an open mind. I should know better by now.
UPDATE: I arrived home from vacation last night to find out I have been sent to Aviation High School for September. The email doesn't even tell me the time to report. Am I supposed to figure it out on my own?
Happy rotating everyone!
