I am an engineer considering a career change. I signed up
for the Virginia "Career Changer Program" which allows one
to switch from a professional to a teaching career in a
short time. My interest is in teaching math and science.
I passed the Praxis II secondary math (0061), Praxis II
secondary physics (0265) tests and plan on taking the
secondary chemistry test (0245) (I am not a glutton for
punishment, I just want to get a job and I would be moving
to VA with my family from out of state). I am interested
in teaching in Northern VA, Loudoun or Fairfax Counties. I
know budgets are tight. What do you think my odds of
getting a teaching position are? Is there any bias for or
against "Career Changers"? Thx.
