Hi everyone! I've been a special education teacher at a private special needs school for 6 years now (since graduating college). I've begun searching for a new job and want to make the move to teaching in a school district. First of all, I'm a bit nervous that my time in a private school setting may not be something a district is looking for. Can anyone give me insight into if this is true or not? And also, I was wondering if it would be beneficial to try to become a substitute in a school district in order to gain district experience and try to find district teaching positions later with that under my belt. Thoughts? I'm finding it difficult to hear back from districts (mainly applying through OLAS). Had one interview last week but haven't heard back as of yet. All thoughts, opinions and suggestions are welcome, thanks!
