People here have great ideas though.
I live in a large area. Cy Fair ISD. I did pass flyers out before I started and I got no one. But I am hoping it picks up. My craigslist ads have been working great, I get lots of calls and some interviews. Actually the kids I have now got my info from craigslist.
