Must Have Website – FYFF

I’m so excited to FINALLY start these posts….I didn’t know if I would have a guest blogger or not (if you want to sign up click “First Year Friday Form” at the top!!!! I would love it!)
Well the authors of this website contacted me about their FANTASTIC site.  I decided to check it out and was literally shocked. 
For me…..this was the JACKPOT!
Welcome to EDU Edge : Insider’s Edge for Landing a Teaching Postion!!
We have all come across tons πŸ™ of interview questions and tips but this is written by adminstrators and principals…what a better place to get advice than from them?!
The blog part contains tips on stuff so relavant to me it’s scary:
  • To do/ do not list for student teacher
  • should you approach principal for observation?
  • What about accepting aide/assitant jobs?
  • What can you do as a sub to get a job the following year?
  • Process and Timeline for hiring
  • Public vs. Private Schools
the list could go on and on….
Sadly, I may have already broken a few of the rules but after reading- they make so much sense!  Any teacher looking to apply again should check out their website!
You can even submit questions (which I did) to get specific answers.
What a fabulous resource for up and coming teachers as well as veterans written from people who want to help and share the information….making it a lot less scary, in my opinon. 
Are you reapplying or changing schools?  Would this information help you?

    That is an awesome website! I especially relate to the tip about how subs can get a job the next school year. I recently started subbing consistently at a school that I'd love a teaching job at so those are great tips! Thank you so, so much for sharing this site!
