I am a preschool teacher. My ultimate goal is to be an elementary teacher. My degree is in elementary education but with the shortage of teaching jobs in my area I ended up at a private school teaching 3 and 4 year olds. I was just wondering if the schools would see my preschool teaching as experience since it is not in elementary. Would they see substituting as more experience or should I stay at my preschool if I cannot get a teaching job for the 2009-2010 school year. What do you think.
