If I can't get a job right out of college with my bachelors (which I doubt I will- its SUPER competitive here in Western New York- and I really want a job in Prek or K, and in the city of Buffalo) I have three options.. I could go to Boulder, CO for this REALLY good Masters/internship program that takes a year and they pay for half of the credits. I would be working 20 hours a week at a very good Kindergarten alongside a "mentor" teacher from August 08-August 09 while attending classes. My second option is to get a teaching job elsewhere, and rack up some experience over one or two years before coming back to look for a job. The third, and I think my most preferable (since I REALLY dont want to leave the area.. I LOVE it here in Buffalo and I would get really homesick if I left even for a short time!!) would be to work at a Head Start or another day care program, which aren't as hard to get jobs at with a bachelors. I'm not sure how public schools would look at that though. It seems like they think of things like that as totally different, like babysitting. Do they??
