    Hi all,
    This week, I started my new job as a curriculum specialist. It's part time, but that's ok. The school is in a local school district, but not the district my kids are in, so the calendar is a bit different. But that's ok, too! I'm just thrilled to have something. I'm hoping that this will lead to a teaching position more so than subbing, since I am in one school and will really get to know the P, AP, and staff. After 4 years of subbing, I really doubt that subbing will lead to a teaching position.
    So far, I'm getting to know the small groups of students I'll be working with.

    Congrats!

    I think subbing can lead to a teaching position in some districts and in some districts, being an aide can lead to a teaching position. Every district is different...frustrating.

    Thanks everyone.
    I think a curriculum specialist is a fancy name for an aide. But it is higher on the pay scale than some aide jobs. According to the job description, all one needs is an AA degree, but a Bachelor's is preferred. I think being credentialed helped me get this job, though. I will be working with small groups, providing reinforcement and enrichment activities.
