I'm turning 40 this year and while I have been working at a university in various support roles, I have no experience teaching. I'm hoping to teach middle school and I've passed my social studies 4-8 certification. I've also coached quite a few youth sports teams. I've done my observation hours, but that is about the extent of my actual in class experience. I can't really sub because I'm working full time and I need that income. Any advice on how to get my first teaching position? I was also considering taking my EC-12 special education certification test...would that help my chances of landing a job? TIA!
