Hi. I am a new member. I have a bachelors degree in Theater. I am attending a community college in North Carolina for Early Childhood Education diploma. After a week of classes, I gotten hired as a Instructional Support Assistant- EC in an elementary school. EC (Exceptional Children) is an alternative word for special education. My goal is to get certified in elementary education, special education and early childhood. I wanted to know if I move out of state would my certificate count towards a job? I am looking into states such as Virginia, Georgia and Maryland.
