Hi all, just thought I would update you all. I have not found a teaching job yet. :( I am starting to get pretty discouraged that I won't find a job for this upcoming school year. The district that I want to work in hasn't even posted jobs yet! Many people have told me that they do not start posting jobs until end of July and beginning of August, so I guess there is still a chance of getting hired. I did email my resume to the principals of schools I substituted at the most. I have a feeling that if I do get hired it will be the week before school starts. That is such a scary thought! Of course, I'd be happy to have a job but that would leave very little time for me to prepare for my classroom. Since I'm a new teacher, I'm starting out with nothing so I'd love to have time to make and plan things for my classroom. I hope all of you are doing well! Hopefully my next post will be announcing my new teaching job! =D


  1. Keep your chin up Natalie! I wish I could tell you it'll get better. I HOPE so but, maybe what I will say will help you feel less discouraged. I have nominated your blog for the Liebster Award for newish bloggers. Please click the link to read my post and see what it's all about.

    1. Awww, thank you!! That means a lot to me!

  2. Hi Natalie! I found your blog though some other blogs I follow! It is so cute! I've been thinking about starting my own blog for a while but I kept putting it off since I don't have a job yet. After reading your blog, you inspired me to go ahead and start one. I'm going through the same thing you are trying to find a job. It's been SO hard! I graduated in December and subbed till the end of the school year and been trying to find a job ever since. I'm your newest follower and I look forward to hearing all about your experiences as a first year teacher. Just like me! Come check out my brand new blog (excuse the mess because I don't really know what I'm doing)! (I still don't know how to create a link HA)

  3. I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Find out more about it on my blog!!

  4. I hope that you are able to find the perfect teaching position for you!
    I love your blog! I nominated you for a Liebster award. Check my blog for more information!

  5. Hi Natalie,

    I hope the job hunt is going well! Good luck...I didn't get my job until August 12th...about a week before school started! Crazy!

    I am a fellow Arkansas blogger. :)

    Good luck!
