I am currently enrolled in a program in order to get an extension on my elementary education teaching certification for special education. The job market for teachers where I live is very tight, even tighter if you are not duel certified which is why I decided to go back to school. I have taught but decided to stay home 7 years ago when I had my second child. I have been subbing for three years now, we moved away from my previous district, the commute would be too far. A friend of mine said that she has heard that with special education certification you can work for an agency on an hourly basis doing early intervention. Does any one have any experience with this? What would be the hourly rate you receive? How difficult is it to get a job with an agency? I am getting frustrated subbing and am trying to think outside the box. Thanks so much for your help.
