Post: Additional Certification

    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.
