    You can join the attn.org which posts jobs for different boards. That's how I got my job in Peel. Now Peel uses a different system- check out their website: www.peelsb.com (Peel is Mississauga, Caledon, Brampton). Other boards- such as Niagara and Halton post on their own boards. Generally, F/T hiring occurs in late spring. Some boards (like Niagara) require you to go through a board-wide interview earlier in the year- apply in January. Peel hires more than any other board, I think.

    Good luck- I'm in my 3rd year- I like it but I can see myself lasting maybe 10 years tops- it's very demanding, long hours, stressful. I've found each year to be a bit easier though- my first year I had a bad class, bad teaching schedule, but now I'm in a good school and it makes all the difference. I really like it, actually- grade 4. Find the age and grade you want.

    Anyways, this is a bit rambly, but I hope it's of some use.
