I will be finished with my California secondary credentials by the end of the year. For now, I'm just doing the requirements for science and English. The whole state seems to be a mess right now, so I'm very nervous about finding a job. I know English is unlikely to help with a job, so I am taking the CSET for science as well. I can teach science and I'm open to inner city as well as rural schools, so hopefully my subject and flexibility will help. Here's what I'm wondering... I am a member of Mensa with an IQ in the 99th percentile. All of my test scores are in the 98-99th percentile. I also have a 4.0 GPA in all undergrad, grad and credential classes. Content matter comes very easily to me and I would have no problem passing the CSET in more areas so that I have more options. When jobs are rare and hard to find, are administrators going to consider things like perfect test scores, etc? Will that help me get a job over someone who has similar qualifications but low to average scores?
