The district that I am employed in hires more interns than credentialed teachers. I have an English Credential and a Special Education credential that are up for renewal by June 2011. I also am applying for a Single Subject Science Credential. I will have to get a teaching job by next year as part of renewing my credentials but I am almost sure no one will hire me. I am thinking of letting my credentials expire and applying as a Special EDucation Intern to get a job in my district. Is this a good idea or a bad idea? I am currently working as a para. I am also wondering if I could get my credential renewed by taking tutoring jobs in addition to working as a para. Advice please.
