Hello all. A little about me. I am a teacher in NJ. For the past five years i have taught part time, substitute taught and took two maternity leaves all which has been great experience. I love to teach and all the people i work with tell me i'm great to work with. Originally i was a phys ed major, however i found myself wanting to teach in a classroom once i gained experience, especially special ed. So i went out and got certified in Special Ed (teacher program), Elementary Ed and Middle School Science. This is the first year i am applying using all four certifications. My question however pertains to my Masters. Originally after my undergrad i got a MA in Administraion. While i'm proud of that accomplishment i also realize it can go against me. The majority of people tell me to leave it on my resume, however i hear stories of districts who won't even look at me because of it. I took it off my resume but am considering adding it back on. With it i'll have a total of 52 grad credits. I just want to know people's opinions, will it help or hurt me? Or does it just depend on the district? I've put so much time and effort into this teaching thing. I love doing it, however the search has been extremely stressful. I second guess myself alot. Thanks for any opinions, they would be appreciated.
