So, I am finding it hard to land a job in HS/MS Social Studies. Surprise, surprise, right? I started out in the science program at my school but switched over to social studies because I enjoy it more -- but, I had a 4.0 in my science program. I have 18 science hours in undergrad, to go with 32 graduate hours in curriculum & instruction. Does anyone know how to add/what it takes to get an alternative certification in science in Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana or Tennessee? I am willing to teach in any of those five states so whichever one offers the easiest route, I will likely take it. I want to teach more than anything. Hindsight being 20/20, I never should have left my science program. I just really did not enjoy my student teaching experience in undergrad science and ended up switching. Probably the worst decision I have made. Despite having publications and a credited part in a book publication under my belt, it has proven almost impossible to find a Social Studies job and I am willing to relocate anywhere! So, any help on alternative science routes?
