Hi everyone- this is my first post on here, so I really don't know what to say.

I've been trying to find a job that is geared more towards what I want to do in the future. I'm in college right now and I will be getting my Associates in May, then transferring to a four year university to get my Bachelors in Teaching and Learning. I love teaching and I love being in the classroom around children. I've been applying for a bunch of jobs because the place I'm at now is just going downhill and has taken such a negative toll on my physical and mental health, it's just bad. The only thing is, all my job recommendations are for customer service (because that's what I do now), but I want something that has to do with teaching. I've worked at two day cares for about 3 months (total). I voluntarily left them one because they were mistreating the children and I did not want to be associated with that and the second because of conflicting schedules with my classes. I want something that isn't daycare but has to do with actually teaching the children because that's my passion. Does anyone have any tips on what I should do? I've updated my resume a billion times and FINALLY have one I'm not ashamed to show people.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you! #collegestudent #futureteacher

You might become a special education assistant or paraeducator at a school district or sign up as a paraeducator with Kelly Educational Staffing and work temporary assistant jobs.

My dear, I just retired from teaching American History to 8th graders for 30 yrs Every school district is as slow as molasses. I'm sure you've submitted all ur credentials. You must get a bachelor's degree to be taken seriously. You may even have to get E. S. E. certification as well. Once ur total pkg is in, find a contact or two who you can call from time to time. You'll get picked up by some district

Depending on the state you live in, substitute teachers work through a recruiting service. Ask the school district if they do so and apply at the recruiting service. You can also do advanced tutoring over the summer for the library for kids who want to get ahead.

Hi Capri, apply with "Teach For America", they'll hire you as a student teacher, as you are continuing your education, and will give you a job, after you gain your Bachelor's. I'm in your shoes now, the thing is, I have my Associates, but never went back for my Bachelor's, it's hard for me to find a job, with just an Associates Degree, but I'm 59 years old, and it's even harder for me period.

You don't have the "teaching credentials" yet and there are thousands of others with both the credentials AND the experience. Check with the "counseling" office at your university for some specific guidance. Be prepared for the need to relocate for a possible job.

You can always look for schools needing TA'S volunteer to help them out I did that once I know they always looking for help from people seems like that would work out great for you.
