Hi all, Career changer here with some doubts and concerns about my decision to potentially pursue teaching. First off, I have a B.S., Information Systems Major, and an A.A., Liberal Studies Major. Not long ago I got my first taste of, and fell in love with teaching after working as an adjunct instructor at a nearby technical college. Since then I have passed the CBEST and the first of three (studying for the other two) Science CSET tests. I was planning on quitting my full time job to pursue substitute teaching while I complete my credential or find an internship position but I am concerned: #1 - Is it reasonable to expect to sub at least 3 days a week (preferably more)? #2 - With the recent California Budget Crisis and all this talk about cutting the state education budget, would it be unwise to pursue teaching as a sub at this time? #2.a - After the budget announcement, I have noticed the substitute teaching job offerings appear to have dried up. Is this just a coincidence since summer is approaching? #3 - While I am confident I can pass the Science CSET, will the fact that my B.S. degree is not in a hard science prevent me from obtaining work even if I complete a credential program? I guess I need some reassurance or advice here. I don't want to leave my career and crawl through a desert only to find that the oasis is a mirage.
