I have been subbing all grade levels the last few months, but I still am unsure if I want to teach special education or elementary. Approximately how many applicants are there for an elementary teacher position? How about Special Education? I read in the state of Washington there is typically a 100 applicants for one elementary teacher opening. Would this number be less for special education? How many applicants are there typically for a Math teacher opening? If need be I could teach Math since I had to take a lot of math for my Computer Science degree, however, I would feel uncomfortable teaching Calculus. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
