I live in California, working as a teacher's aide and tutor for the past 2 years. I have taken and passed 3 content tests for Texas (Sped EC-12, Generalist 4-8 and Generalist EC-6). I have been applying to so many districts out in the Houston and Dallas area but I haven't had many responses. I know that being an out of state candidate AND an Alternative Certification Candidate puts me at a disadvantage. Does anyone have any tips for trying to get interviews when you live out of state? I have already flown to Houston and Dallas twice for a job fair and to take tests. I really want to relocate but I can't afford to go back and forth!
