My bona fides consist of being a 30 year teacher in Prince George's.

I don't care if Colorado or Maryland is conservative or liberal, because that doesn't matter to me. That is a stupid thing to bring up.


Thanks to the others who have been helpful in this post.
Having spent most of my life I know a little bit about MD politics.

I gauarntee you that if the school board knew you are a conservative republican, you wouldn't have chance in hell of getting hired.

THAT is my point.

My political views do not steer where I get a job... when you are a teacher in this economy, you take what you can get. I don't care. I keep my views to myself.

Why would the school board know if she was a republican?

Maybe that is your problem, I have never had a job where my political views were an issue. Probably because I don't bring my political views to work.

As far as Prince George's goes. School just closed last Tuesday. Tenured teachers have until July 15 to resign or retire so many schools won't have an idea about their staffing needs until then. Also, voluntary and involuntary transfers have to be placed before new staff is hired.

Anne Arundel I'd call back. School systems here tend to get sloppy and most of their HR departments are.........challenged would be the word I'd use.

I usually don't quote myself but I wanted to address what I bolded.

One of our Counselors was just offered a job in another County. She accepted it so we now have a vacancy. But since many schools have cut Counselors there are a bunch out there awaiting reassignment so we will get one of those before any new hire no matter how qualified.

Is it safe to say it may take later into the summer before the bigger districts do a lot of their hiring?

All of them really, as I mentioned the drop dead date for tenured staff to resign/retire is July 15th.

As a note for those who will say, "Well if you want to go then just go. They can't make you stay".

You would be correct but the penalties for late retirees is forfeiture of a couple months of pension and Teaching Certificate suspension (Prince George's especially does that) while resignees lose their certification. Without your certificate you can't teach in another system. They also don't state for the public record what caused the suspension so you're lumped in with the sex offenders and thieves.

the one of the most important things is being in a good mood, don't show that you are nervous, and have some answers ready the most important are some like what can you bring new, whats your qualities.

Hi! I also recently moved to Maryland and got a teaching job at South River High School starting this fall. The process is different depending on what you want to teach. But you start out by filling out an online application which I left in the link below:

https://sjobs.brassring.com/TGWebHos...26&siteid=5257

Usually after you fill out an application, you get interviewed by the board, or the principals of the school you could teach at etc. (It depends on what you're teaching.)
