Thanks! This one sounds really perfect for me, the only problem is that I am not done with Americorps until July 22-- and seeing as how this was on monster.com NOW, I doubt they want to wait several months before hiring.. but who knows?

Never hurts to try. They may be hiring for the fall. Or willing to wait for you if you're the perfect candidate. Don't let it stop you.
