I am an elementary teacher who retired two years ago due to
a family illness. I want to return to teaching but realize
the competition is huge. I want to make myself more
marketable by getting additional certification in another
area. (I already have Reading certification, as well). I
was thinking about Special Education or English/Language
Arts. The number of courses needed are about the same.
Honestly, do I have a chance at being hired with one of
these certifications? Which do you think would make me a
more desirable candidate in a middle school? I will be
nearly 65 when I do receive this certification....will that
hinder my chance of being hired? Thank you for your advice.
