Lake county is very small. What town? If you are going to be
on the west side of Lake around Mentor, Painseville, Concord,
etc. you may want to look at Cuyahoga County - right next door.
Jobs are very hard to come by in NE Ohio. Special Ed or any
other certification is very competitive. Be sure that you are
HQT in specific subjects or you will have a really hard time.
You can get HQT by either taking Praxis tests or sitting through
classes. Some of the classes are offered by the local education
associations. Hope that helps and good luck.
