Fired off several more applications to various school districts (now with Metro State and Praxis test files attached!) but I'm only up to 13 applications, including the separate online applications I had to file with Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria. I'm also disturbed by the fact that some of the jobs posted on the state site aren't on the county sites, but most of those districts have something else -usually English or Spanish - that I'm confident I can teach, so it's no big deal. Anyhow, I want to have at least 20 or 30 apps out there before the end of the month, because the more applications I have in the pipeline the better chance I have to actually get an offer. I may also consider checking out some of the Maryland counties across the river from Loudoun County.
Right now, though, it's time to sort laundry and get that done before it gets too much later.
