I've landed a job at a private school and my expired generalist test can barely be revived to get me officially certified. And I'll be paid much more than my measly aide pay. Best of all, I get to teach half day PE(whole school=40 students) and half day kinder---only 8 kiddos!!! I will gladly take the $15,000 pay cut from public schools to work in these kinds of conditions. Don't get discouraged guys---it will happen for you too!
