Many school districts offer their own Teacher Fairs throughout the year to recruit future teachers. It’s never a bad idea to get face-to-face with these employers to express your interest (even if it’s a few years from now)! Keep your eyes and ears open for others this winter, spring, and early summer.
I often get asked about references (who to ask and how to set them up) and also about letters of recommendation (who to ask and what’s the difference anyway?). This is a copy of a document my colleague put together that I’ve changed slightly to fit the teaching profession. It’s kinda long, but full of good information. Hope this helps!
Now is a good time to start thinking about where you want to teach at the end of your program and how to find these opportunities. I’d recommend that you start this search by using Handshake to help you identify possible opportunities or potential school districts of interest. Although Handshake is just one job search resource, if they’re posting on Handshake they REALLY want to hire an MSU teacher.
Every once in a while an intern gets through his/her student teaching and decides that classroom teaching is not for them. And guess what, that’s OK! If this is how you’re feeling, read on.
