The market is tough, but if you don't mind subbing, being a
para, or getting a part-time job(where the district doesn't
give you benefits), then you'll be able to get your foot
through the door and secure a better job in the future. BTW,
Math jobs are more plentiful than social studies or English.
Sorry that I can't give you any particulars about the areas
that you are interested in, but I did want to wish you luck.
