    Has anyone else hit a brick wall in terms of trying to get an intern teaching position in California as opposed to student teaching?

    I’m considered intern eligible in General Science, Geoscience and Physical Education. Passed all the CSET’s.

    I'm not in California, but where I worked in both Virginia and North Carolina, schools, as a matter of policy, never hired interns.

    Hugs, 99 percent. I can only guess that the supply of credential holders in your geographical area and subject matter areas may be meeting local departments' needs for teachers: a district has to submit a certain additional amount of paperwork before hiring and while the intern teacher is on the payroll.

    Another possibility is that all the schools in your area are going with the integrated-science model laid out in the state's version of Next Generation Science Standards, in which all sciences are offered in rotation each year.

    @Geologygirl, can I ask you to weigh in?
