6. SOE: if needed, work on getting your SOE (Statement of Eligibility).
7. Substitute: Get experience teaching. Get a sub license and work as many days as possible as a substitute.
8. Letters: Get as many letters of recommendation as possible from people who can vouch for your ability to work with children. Pursue getting letters attesting to your abilities from other teachers, principals, parents, and even students.
9. Volunteer: Inquire at your local school about who could use an assistant in the classroom. This is a great way to get extra exposure to teaching and the field of education in general. It’s also a great way to get letters.
10. Summer work: Get a job in the summer working with kids, preferably as a teacher, but camp counselor positions etc. are also helpful on your resume.
11. Contact us again: Keep us in the loop as you achieve significant milestones in this process. We will update your profile in our database and make a note of your continued interest. Send us updated versions of your resume. We like to know you’re still out there and interested. We would rather send a candidate out for an interview who we know is serious about pursuing teaching positions.
12. Guidance: Pick the right path in your journey. Supply and demand issues must be carefully considered when you select the direction of your teaching career. For example, far too many people decide to go back to school to earn an elementary education degree. This path takes years and when complete the realization sets in that there is too much competition for too few jobs. The opposite is true for math teachers. Be smart with your choices and construct a good workable plan for getting from where you are to where you want to be. We are happy to try to advise you in this area.
