Hi all, I am a certified k-5 teacher. I haven't been able to a land a teaching job since graduating college in 2009. I have been subbing on and off, and just began to consider teaching or working in a preschool/daycare. I see some job postings for infant/toddler/pre-k teachers and assistant teachers. Since I'm new to all of this should I start out with being an assistant to get the hang of things? I would be really new to the preschool environment and its routines and thought by being an assistant it might help me assimilate. Also, should I apply for infant teacher/teacher assistant jobs because I don't have any real experience working with babies. I understand that babies are very precious and I would not want to harm them. I think I have changed a couple of diapers in my life. I don't know much about feeding them. Are daycares willing to train or should I avoid this age group? Any other tips or suggestions would be helpful, I'm really lost as to what to do with myself.
