I wrote a grant proposal for the Pepsi Refresh Project to get classroom libraries all over my school. I could really use some support and votes. I work in a poor area, and my students don't have access to books at home. Here's the link: www.refresheverything.com/booksforelston
Please take a minute to vote. It would mean a lot to me and my students. You can vote once a day until June 30 at midnight.
If your school needs money for a project, I also recommend trying out your own proposal.
I am currently teaching grades 6 - 8 north of Boston in a suburban school district. I have certification in English which ranges from grades 5 - 12. I am in my second year of teaching and am going to be relocating to the West Coast. I am looking to end up in either the Portland, Oregon area or near Tacoma, Washington. If anyone out there in LiveJournal Land has any information about jobs out that way, I would sure appreciate a heads-up. It is hard enough to land a job here in Massachusetts and I have never tried to find one on the other side of the country before. Any helpful hints or links to job postings would be tremendously helpful. I have had no luck at all with Monster, Craigslist, or SchoolSpring thus far. Thanks!

I thought I'd throw this out there just in case.
Does anyone know of any schools that are going to be needing a theatre teacher for the '10-'11 school year? I'm currently in Florida and have my 5 year professional certificate with coverage in Drama 6-12, English 6-12, and Elem Ed k-6. I figure it's worth a shot!

Come and help us make the community grow. It's also a way to get additional support and feedback from your colleagues. (You can NEVER have enough of that! Can you?)
***There's a posting section in regards to employment and seeking a teaching position where you can get help from other unemployed teachers and even employed ones!!!
I am doing an action research project for grad school about using dramatic activities in the content classroom. I made a survey online for classroom teachers. It would help me soooooo much if you could fill out the survey.
Thanks so much!!! It would help me sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
PS: This is for Pre-k to HS teachers.
My school is pushing us all to do an electronic portfolio which sounds great and all but I want to have something in my hand at an interview rather than hoping they have internet access in the room we're in. I have no guidance in a paper portfolio so here are my questions...
Where do I get a "portfolio" to put my documents in?
And are there any online resources to help guide me?
With all my student loans looming over my head I'm looking for any help I can get!
Thanks in advance!

Post common interview questions in the comments and if you have a spectacularly good answer, you can post that, too.
I'll go first: What is your biggest fault? What area would you like to focus on next year?
(I haven't yet found a good way to answer that one.)
