Hello everyone, I am a certified science, English, and Special education teacher working as a para. I have worked as a para for the past three years. I have tried to apply for teacher openings at my school and I am always rejected. I also applied for teacher openings in the district. I managed to pass the interview but i was not put on the hiring list even though I asked my principal for a reference. Today I overheard the school office manager talking to another teacher about another opening for a special education teacher and they want to hire an uncredentialed teacher for the position. They are waiting for this teacher to pass the MS CSET. I have passed all of the tests and have sent my resume multiple times. What is wrong with me? I feel I am wasting my time at this school. I do not have a permanent position. I keep working as a floater and sometimes Iget to handle resource students but I am extremely dissatisfied. I am going to take the Chemistry CSET in November. I wonder if I should just quit this job and leave this district? For some reason they really and truly dislike me and I do not know why. Should I go to the principal or assistant principal and ask why they will not hire me as a teacher or should I just give up? I am really fed up with this crummy school. I feel they dislike me because I am 56, white, and I do not speak Spanish.
