While I'm on a roll with the alliteration - which will help me to remember which type of post belongs to which day of the week - here's something interesting.
I've heard to the top 10 cities to live in, the top 10 cities for young professionials, etc. Now is the top 10 cities for young teachers. None of which are in California. Is that some sort of coincidence?
The only city on the list that I would actually consider is D.C. The southern cities are WAY too hot. And I would stick out like a sore thumb in the remaining ones. Although, when it comes down to it, I'll take any decent job offer from any location.
It's not a bad idea to step out of my comfort zone either. Up until now, I've only thought to look for jobs in California. And then the Great Pink Slip Fiasco of 2009 occurred, so it's back to the drawing board for me. So in a way, I'm glad I haven't been shoved out into the teaching job market right now. This is the only way I'm glad for it, however.
In any case, I should spend the rest of my summer submitting my portfolio to as many places as I can.
