Legacy Blog #103 - "Sometimes the questions are COMPLICATED and the answers are SIMPLE"

It's that time of the year again...
      New teachers and all you free-spirit floaters know exactly what I'm talking about. For many people, summer break may as well be renamed "Interview Season". It's a nerve-racking time of year solely dedicated to perfecting your resume, searching for just the right schools, and praying that one of your top choices contacts you for an interview. Whew! I'm exhausted just writing about it! 
     Well, if you're one of those people who relies on Google or Siri for help, it may take you hours or days to browse through endless templates of "Award Winning Resumes" or "101 Top Interview Questions". Sound familiar? Then you find yourself asking: But which one should I choose? Are any of these specifically for educators? Will this resume generator spell-check and proofread my submission? Good Lord! Who has time for all that? "Not I", says the last minute procrastinator still determined to enjoy as much summer fun as possible. (Hmm, just me again?)
