I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Chris and I just graduated from college with a degree in music education. I haven't started looking for teaching jobs yet because I am transgendered (FTM) and I want to at least get my name legally changed before I start sticking my foot in the door of public schools. I have been looking around for information on transgendered teachers and how difficult it is to actually be employed. I live in Philadelphia, so to be quite honest I am not all that concerned, but I still do have many fears and concerns with my transition and being employed as a teacher. I was wondering if there is anybody in this group that would know from either personal experience or have any information on being a transgendered teacher they would be able to share with me. I have already joined the transteachers LJ community but it seems as though there aren't too many people active there
So thanks for any information you could give me, I would really appreciate it!
