Hey guys, I searched the forums, but it seems a lot of the good info is from a while back (some of the threads I read were from 2009). But anyways, I have my Bachelor's in French and I would like to move to Florida to get a job teaching either French or Elementary Ed. I plan on taking the Elementary Ed test very soon, and it appears that I don't have to take the French test until after I would get hired, since my degree is in French. Does anyone know how difficult/easy it is to get a job with minimal experience using this alternative route? I do have experience with children. I taught English to elementary school children for a semester in France. I also worked one-on-one for several years with an autistic child and I have taken a couple of education classes. (Content literacy, teaching foreign language) I currently live out-of-state, but my fiance's family lives in Florida. Would it help if I mentioned that I have family there? My fiance also wants to move there and get a job teaching elementary ed. His degree is in Accounting, but he works at an after-school program with elementary kids and he loves it. Of course it doesn't pay quite enough, since it's part-time, so he's looking for a similar field. Elementary ed seems to be the perfect fit. Does anyone have any experience with these alternative routes? Google hasn't been particularly helpful for finding "success stories".
