Hi everyone, I have a couple of questions about how student teaching experiences impact future job options. 1) The majority of my student teaching will likely take place at a private school. I'm just wondering how that will impact my chances of getting a future teaching job at a public school. Do public schools care where you've done your student teaching or are they mostly interested in hiring quality teachers? Anyone have any experience with this? 2) Most of my student teaching experience will likely take place in 1st grade. Again, I'm wondering how that will impact future job possibilities. Will I mostly be limited to the lower grades (k-2) or will schools also consider me for higher grades (3-5). Again, if anyone has any thoughts on this, I'd be intersted in hearing them. Thanks!
