I have a few questions I am hoping you can help answer. I recently became certified as a Education Specialist (mild/moderate) with a preliminary credential here in CA with an out of state transfer. When applying for jobs, I noticed that I do not meet a few requirements, namely NCLB compliance, added autism authorization, or ELL authorization. In addition, I haven't taken the CSET. I have friends who have found jobs here in CA without any of the requirements I have listed. My question to you is: do you recommend I continue to search for SPED positions, or should I go back to school and get all of those requirements met? I have the option of going back to a higher paying job in a related field, but honestly, I would prefer to make the career switch now and work on those requirements while I am a SPED teacher.
