Hello Everyone! I really need some advice. I graduated with a bachelor degree in 09 and went back to get my alternative teaching certification this year through a community college. However, everyone with alternative certification in Texas seems to be having a hard time finding a job. My goal is to become a kindergarten teacher. I have had interviews at day-cares as a preschool teacher/assistant teacher. Would that suffice as experience if I ever do get the opportunity to interview for a kindergarten teacher? My school does offer student teaching, however, I have a 9 month old and paying daycare and working for free would be difficult. Also, if I do get a job working as a preschool teacher/assistant teacher, I was debating either going back for a masters degree education OR going back for a Spanish degree, I'm native speaker but I need the formal education in order to teach bilingual. What do you think would make me more marketable, Preschool teaching vs. student teaching and spanish degree for bilingual certification vs. master degree in education? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
