I applied to many districts for elementary ed. teaching jobs and was just contacted by a high school that was interested in interviewing me for an tv production teaching job. The person wanted to know if I would be eligible for a certificate in the field. My BA's concentration was in this field - over 40 credits in the area. I have to apply for the certificate and I found out that I won't have to take additional courses (via an alternate route program, which I thought I might have to do) since I already went through a traditional teaching program (Masters in Elementary Education). My dilemmas are as follow: - Do I really want to teach high schoolers? No...my dream grades are K-5. But, I also still like my old field and maybe this wouldn't be too bad since it's a "fun" elective class. - I have to apply for the certificate and find out if I have enough courses to get it (almost $200...ugh), which takes a few weeks to obtain. I suppose I could interview for the position and just let the person know that my transcript is under evaluation. - What happens if I'm offered this position before landing interviews for elementary ed. teaching jobs? It seems like there aren't many candidates for this field...otherwise, I wouldn't have been contacted. I literally sent out over 50 applications and school districts will be calling to interview people soon (hopefully me lol). What it comes down to is that this isn't my dream job, but I don't want to cancel it out right away. What would you do? I suppose the best answer would be to interview for the position, but I really don't want to waste the person's time if it's not my first choice. Thanks!
