    What are all the certifications that you have? Just curious!

    Oh, you’ll definitely have a job waiting for you. I’m a math teacher and can get a job anywhere. However, foreign language and ESL teachers are in great demand, too; perhaps, even more so.

    I don't know what your problem is. Our two ESOL teachers are regularly pulled to cover absent teachers because we can't get subs or they cancel at the last minute for better schools. Both seem to have the easiest jobs in the school, and last week I even saw one on her phone while supposedly teaching two students. Yeah, 2 students.

    Sounds like where I live in NY. There's a lot of competition and not a lot of openings in most areas.

    You should get a certification in math even if you don’t plan on teaching it. That way, your application will be favored over other candidates. For example, you could have literacy, elementary, special ed, and math certifications and schools would snatch you right up!
