What is the best way to get a job as a teacher (elementary)?
I know all industries have their ins and outs. What are the "rules of the game" for finding a teaching job after graduation? Is it about who you know? Is it about where your degree is from? What can I, or anyone else, do to get a leg up on the competition?
You should have done your internship and having done that, you should have an in as far as knowing what districts are hiring. If you are interested in teaching in public schools it would be helpful to start out as a sub.Sign up with as many districts as you can that you can comfortably travel to. If you are interested in teaching in exclusive private schools (Town, Urban, etc.). It is who you know.
Having a leg up in this industry means having worked in a school and getting to know the staff, administrators, parents and students.

How do schools in America work?I've always wondered this, I hear about middle school and high school but what ages are they. In the UK we just have primary and secondary, and lets say year 8 in the UK wouldn't be the same age as 8th grade in the US.
