Hi, I had preliminary credential for single subject English teaching issued back in 2005.I passed CBEST in 2007.I never taught in any school.Because of family, I was not able to complete any required coursework by 2011 which was the deadline. I have worked as para educator in special ed for 10 years.Now I want to go back to teaching.But my preliminary credential can't be renewed. I called county they said 1.I have to apply for an appeal to one year extension. Can anyone tell me what documents or letters can I put accompanying the application to support my case? 2.Can all required coursework towards clear credential be completed from different universities e.g. some from UCSandiego,UCLA? Do they give transcripts? 3.After coursework and exams like CSET, U.S.Constitution are done how do we apply for clear credential? Is done through CCTC online or we have to request it though college,university, county? 4.If I don't get extension of 1 year ,I will not get job,then how will I clear my BTSA requirement? What could be my options? I would appreciate any help anybody can offer since I feel very confused.
