in nyc you can teach w/your bachelors, after they review your transcripts and decide what subject area etc you can teach....it was hard to find a position because i'm not FROM nyc, so I didn't know the schools, so I sent my resume and called a BUNCH of schools....the first school that interviewed me (which was a long table with all the staff sitting around it and me at the head, and all of them asking me different questions ) I liked the atmosphere, the staff, the area etc. My trancripts got reviewed so I could teach chemistry or general science. I'm uncertified, but within the first year of teaching, if I take the LAST and ATS-W exams, a few workshops and some classes, I could be a nys certified teacher....not bad eh? i'm excited to teach, the only thing i'm worried about it my DAT for dental school is the last week in august, and i have a week of teaching orienation right before....and I can't get out of it....its gonna SUCK, but I just have to stay focused.Originally posted by dirtybob
i'm really excited actually to teach biology. I've taught a science class at an after school program for two years, so now i've decided to teach biology in high school. i still have to get hired, but i'm staying positive since the demand for teachers is high apparently. Did you find it tough to get your teaching position vixen? oh yeah, do you have your teaching credentials too?
teaching is the shiznit! teaching my 3rd 'MCAT season' @ Kaplan and I keep meeting interesting people each time. The best is seeing people going from being down on themselves, expecting a 25 to the confident, answer-every-question-front-row person shooting for the 35Originally posted by dirtybob
