Hello all from NJ I have been reading the form for a while now, and tonight I have decided to join. Everybody is so wonderful and helpful...... I am from Europe and I have been living in USA since 1996. I am almost citizen. I was a Teacher in Europe and i decided to teach in USA too. I took Alternate Route and got my CEAS. Now, i am hunting for a job. My CEAS allows me to teach K-5th grade, great so far. I got a couple interviews however, principals have such prejudice towards people like me (who took alternate route). I was wondering anybody else is having the same problem? Have you got a job yet as an alternate route taker? Does anybody know, any web-sites that helps people like me? Any comments, help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Demet Bilter.
