When Looking for Art Job

One thing I have come across north of Chicago is a new type of hiring. It
seems that district will hire you for 1-2 years and then "find reasons" why
you should be let go. They do that so that they don't have to have tenure and
keep the lower pay scale. So if you're apply for a job where there are a lot
of teachers being hired, you might want to check into how many teachers
they hired and how often is there a turn around. I thought it was strange
that we hired almost 100 teachers in 1 year and that there were 3 new art
teachers that year. This year there are 4 art teachers being hire and only
one is out for maturnity. So keep your eyes open.
