Apparently, the areas that are still being needed to be filled in NYC are the following… * The arts (including art, gym, music, dance, etc.) * Math * Science * ESL * Bilingual * Early Childhood I find it strange that everyone always says "special education is always needed" and it's not there. Yet, subjects like art and gym, where people are saying that you don't get any security there, are needed. Pretty strange…and they had the need of special ed and ESL throughout the entire summer last year. I understand the strong need for early childhood, though. So for those who are still looking in NYC, if you have any of these certifications, try to apply to schools for those positions! If not, still apply!
