Hello! I'm from Colorado and moving to Maryland in a month from now after I get married. I have been teaching in elementary schools in Colorado for 4 years. I've been applying all over the place in Maryland in hopes of getting a teaching job close to Annapolis. I have my Maryland teaching certificate.

So far I've had a prescreening phone interview with Anne Arundel County Public Schools. I was excited to get that one, but my gut feeling tells me I did not do as well as I thought. I had the interview the end of May and now it's the end of June and I have yet to hear from anyone in that district regarding more interviews at the school level.

I've been talking to an HR person in PG County and had one interview for a school in Oxon Hill, MD. How is Oxon Hill? Should I stay away from it?

In a couple of weeks I will have a prescreening interview with Montgomery County. Any tips or advice on that one? What should I expect?

Also hoping to get a prescreening interview with Howard County, as the HR person told me to check back with them in a few weeks to see if they opened up their interviewing schedule.

Any tips or advice would be helpful! Thanks!

Oxon Hill. It will be a different experience if you're expecting middle class students.

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.

My wife taught public in Baltimore for 15 years, just jumped to private school.

As August draws near and thru, public systems will be looking for labor. Special Ed and math and science are generally short.

Parts of PG county are not great. I suggest avoiding Baltimore City and Baltimore County (County CEO sucks and has doen a crappy roll out of Common Core, lots of disgruntled teachers there).

Anne Arundel is OK, Howard and Montgomery aren't bad. Carrol is not bad. And congrats on getting married!

Good luck. Public school teaching in MD is tough.

Oh I have Plenty of clues.

Do you DENY that MD isn't run by liberal Democrats? Especially the areas she is looking in.

That the MD Teacher's Assn. isn't a VERY liberal org.?

Maybe it is you who has to get a clue!

Wow! Because this post was supposed to be all political anyway!

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.
