The school year is coming closer and closer. I have an opportunity to be a teacher assistant in a head start classroom. My goal is to be an elementary education teacher. The reason I am not getting hired is because of my experience. I recently graduated and have no "real" teacher experience. To gain experience is it more beneficial for me to take this teacher assistant position in the head start classroom or should I substitute? Could someone please give me advice. I just don't know what the schools will look at when they look at me next year for a position when it comes to experience. Thank you in advance.
