Can I Still Find a Teaching Position?

April 24, 2014

lookingforjob28364447Dear ISR,
I was unable to attend the recruiting fair I signed up for due to unforeseen health problems (now a thing of the past). I desperately want to go back overseas (I’ve been back in England for a year now) but have no idea how to go about finding a position at this late date.

Do you think it is still possible to find a position or should I just hang it up until next year? What do you think about sending out a mailer to schools introducing myself? I’m a maths teacher and I’ve taught high school science. I am told science teachers are in demand. Is there a web site that advertises emergency openings? Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Oh… by the way…love your web site! I’ve been a member for 4 years and vetted my first school using your reviews

With warm regards,
Skip (last name withheld by request)

NOTE: ISR has already sent Skip some basic advice.  We decided to through this topic out to ISR readers who are/have been actively engaged in the recruiting process this season and able to offer more timely, insightful advice.
