2/4/08- Open Mike

Hello Fellow NTI classmates:

I really need your help locating a job. My certification is in Video Broadcast and Business Education. I can teach Computer Applications, Business Principles, Video Journalism or TV Broadcast. I think I may be successful finding something in Gwinnett but just in case I'm not, I really need you to find out if your school is in need of someone fitting my job description.

I can forward you my resume in the event that you would like to preview it or pass it along to a colleague. Just let me know. I am truly tired of being a Stellar Sub and would like to be teaching in my own classroom for the upcoming school year. I am located in Dacula, GA which is very deep into Gwinnett but am willing to drive as far as Dekalb or Fulton if necessary.

I really do appreciate your help. Thanks and keep me in your prayers as I job hunt and sometimes grow weary.

I do not know of any possible jobs for you, but I want to say this - whatever school gets you will be well blessed. I listen to you in class and am constantly amazed by your insight. How long have you been a sub.? Have you had a "butt-load" of psych. classes?

I've forwarded your blog post on to the Video Production teacher at Corey's school-- Grayson High School. Maybe he knows of some potential openings.

I have heard that there may be some openings in business procedures at my school for next year maybe two but I'll have to warn you my school is a special ed center in Dekalb. It's not for everybody. Job is in Chamblee. Let me know if you are interested.
