I should be getting a CE in elem. ed soon but I am full of doubts whether this will do me any good and I am very nervous. Does anyone in New Jersey hire alt. route candidates? I know the school districts are bound legally to hire alt. route and would like hear some positive hiring stories, if there are any! Actually I want to teach elementary-level ESL and the CE is only the first step. Any teachers here ESL-certified via the alternate route? Thanks so much!
