Hi! I apologize in advance if this question has been answered already. I am currently enrolled in my last quarter as a Communicative Disorders BA however I do not want to continue into the field of speech pathology. I want to pursue a Masters and teaching credential in special education option: mild/moderate disabilities. I have been working as a middle school special education mild/mod aid for collab/rsp classes. I really enjoy it however the pay is okay and I only work 3 hours. I am going to be done with school in December and I do not plan on going immediately back to school due to financial reasons and my BA loan. And if it helps I also worked with adults with disabilities with their adaptive living skills, but I quit due to transportation issues. ( I had to have a car at all times) My question is should I continue being an aide with little hours or should I apply to become a substitute? Which would help me in the long way?
