I signed up for a charter school job fair on the Saturday I am taking the Multiple Subject CSET. There is no way I can rush through the test and get down there on time. I do not want to postpone the test. I feel like a doofus for missing this opportunity. Three teachers at my synagogue who also work for my district said that I was stupid to be looking for a teaching job when LAUSD is not hiring. They told me I would be laid off as a special ed. assistant and I would not find a job anywhere. I did not tell them I was looking. Some other person did. I feel so depressed. I have certification in special ed. and science and my district is recruiting in those areas. It even says that on their website. I am afraid to tell anyone I am looking because everyone thinks I am such a loser. Now I have to miss a job fair. Should I just give up taking the CSET? No one will probably hire me anyway.
