I currently work full time in higher education and I've been looking for work in the public school system. I hold my teaching credential which just recently expired because I never had the opportunity to teach in order to clear my California credential. I have two possible opportunities at this time.... -(Full Time) Kindergarten Teaching Position in a religious private school. - Unfortunately, the pay is very low (lower than my current position) but I would be getting back into teaching. -(Part Time - 19 hours a week) Technology Instructional Assistant Position with a school district. - The major drawback is that the position is part time and the pay is low as well. On the plus side, I would be working for a school district which can lead to additional opportunities in the future) In both cases, I would enroll in an induction program online in order to clear my credential. (hopefully by next year). In your opinion, what would be the best path to take to get back into elementary education with a final goal of working full time for a public school district? Thank you!
