I have a type 10 special certification for special education LBS 1 in Illinois. Im getting my early childhood special education approval. All (most) the jobs that Ive seen in IL state they want a type 04 (early childhood) with the ECSE approval. Im going to assume it is because they want someone to teach regular early childhood kids and special education kids in a blended type classroom. I really do not want to teach regular pre school kids...Id rather stick with a whole room of special needs kids. Anyone have some insight on if having a type 10 with ECSE is even going to be worth it? I've seen maybe 1 or 2 jobs that says type 04 or type 10 with ECSE approval.
