Hi all! I'm working on applying to a multi-subject credential program in CA and I am totally stumped on one of the requirements. The school website states that I need to complete 45 hours of pre-admission field experience in a K-5 classroom. Ways to accomplish this include subbing, being an instructional aide, or being a classroom volunteer. In the districts around me in CA, subbing is nearly impossible for inexperienced teachers, since so many laid off teachers are in the subbing pool. My question is this: does anyone have any advice on how I should go about becoming a classroom volunteer? I have no teacher friends that I can call, and no contacts in any districts. I am kind of just lost right now, and any advice you all can offer would be greatly appreciated. For a little background, I have passed the CBEST and am in the process of studying/taking the CSET. Thanks!
