How can I find a teaching position in the western PA area?
I'm currently a teacher trying to obtain a new teaching position in the Pittsburgh/western PA area, and I am having the worst time! I got my first job by a stroke of luck. I have my profile on PA Educator, and I've been searching the Post-Gazette online, on school websites, etc. Where else can I find teaching position postings for this area? Any advice?

I would try going into local school district offices and personally delivering your resume and ask them if they plan on hiring for the fall. Also, you could sign up as a substitute teacher just to get to know people in the schools so you may have an advantage in working for them on the future. Good luck!

Don't worry! I live in this area; most of the districts are just beginning to start the interviewing process. PA educator will come through; since so many of the districts are small, you will get many phone calls during the month of July and possibly August. Don't sign with a school too early. Be prepared to go on... More
