I never have enough books to use in my classroom. I take the classics, such as, THE PEARL, and read it out loud to the class. I hate to keep asking parents for money to purchase books for children. Although, it is a better investment than video-games.

Please.....I have all the books and programs my children and I can swallow. I have manuals and workbooks filling the shelves. What I NEED is another warm body to hear the heart-rendering stories of my students and to help me with remediation and support. I need trained, competent PEOPLE to help me. One person cannot teach 30 students ALL this information by oneself. I need a walking, talking, caring, educated paraprofessional who can team with me to help bring out the best in my students!! ASAP

As simplistic as it may sound, peace on earth. Less violence, less willingness by individuals to resort to violence and an increase in care and concern for others.

Need a job before I can want something.

I need a teaching job before I can want better communication between Teachers/Parents/Administrators, better pay, and other items for a classroom. I have been waiting for six years for my first job and still waiting. Recent layoffs and budget reductions since the state of the economy is getting worse doesn't help. I noticed they will hire the recent graduate with no experience over a person with real world work experience. I have been in the classroom as a substitute teacher, but that doesn't matter to most administrators. I have worked with all kinds of curriculum and even did my student teaching when I could have opted out, but that doesn't matter to most of the administrators. I would be a first year teacher so I am going to be hired at the same rate as a recent graduate. I have kept up with my credit hours required by the state. I have kept up with technology and new strategies for teaching via the internet and workshops. I am up-to-date with Gift/Talented, Special Needs, and other areas of interest to admininstrators. Help! What else could I do to be hired by a school district?
