    I am so happy to say that my 3rd interview was the charm:D I accepted a PPCD (preschool position) at an elementary on Wed. it is 6 miles from my house. I am a career changer and have very little teaching experience. So those ACP people out there....DO NOT give up!! I start Aug. 20th and next Friday I am to attend a new teacher celebration breakfast and then my new boss (principal) is taking me to lunch:)
    I just feel very blessed right now and totally overwhelmed.
    Thanks to all of you for giving me the confidence to keep going, stay positive and not to give up. I have really enjoyed reading all of the posts. You all ROCK!!

    I am going to move on to the pre-school posts and to the Spec. ED posts for now.

    Best of luck to you all that are still looking. Head up, don't give up, believe and you will succeed:2up:

    Thanks! Sugar Land. I accepted a position in Alief ISD. My son goes to Fort Bend. Alief is very close to me though. There are tons of schools around me, however I felt the competition here. Lots of teachers here! Where are you? Are you teaching K?

    That's great! Do you have to be special ed to accept a PPCD position? I was asked to interview for a PPCD position but I'm not special ed.

    Thanks:) Yes, you do have to take/pass the EC-12 Spec Ed test. There may be an EC-4 Spec. Ed test, I'm not sure. You can contact your program and ask them. I think in TX it is the EC-12 but then you are qualified to teach all grade levels.

    I thought so thank you for verifying it for me. I got a job today! I'm going to be teaching 3rd grade bilingual. I don't really want to teach bilingual ed but thats what I need to get my foot in the door.
