The rantings of a teacher who retired from the classroom but not from education.
You may be applying for the job along side the young ones. Principals are already telling which teachers are getting tenure, being denied or extended. I have been privately contacted on some of these situations. There will be A LOT more tenure denials this year as opposed to others.(This is people's lives they are dealing with. The DOE bureaucrats have absolute no conscience.)
After a year in retirement from teaching, and looking for a job in the non-profit sector, I will tell you that most jobs are going to the very young-30 and under. Even though I have the skills for the jobs to which I have applied, and I have shown how my skills would apply to the said job, I have only gotten one interview, and then I was told I would be bored. After 21 years in an inner city high school, boredom is fine with me.
On a postive note, if they are like the DOE, you would be a shoe in for a supervisory position. No experience driving the trucks but magically qualified.
