I have been working in EPSB for 8 years as a Custodian and I can say that finding full time as a teacher is really difficult. I have talked with numerous student teachers and they are almost discouraged from teaching just because it would take them a long time until they are even considered some type of work. A lot of the new teachers I know go to small towns and start there. Then build up to the EPSB. Another problem I have seen is there are teachers who are well past their retirement age and just want to keep teaching. I mean, nothing wrong with that, but then you are taking away from the new teachers who want a shot at a full time position.

But enough from me talking about this in a Oil Kings thread. Back on topic.
