Hi all,

I am wondering if there is anyone out there who is, or has, pursued the Alternative license in Colorado. I have passed my Praxis II and have my SOE, but have yet to get hired as an Elementary teacher. Has anyone had luck with this and, if so, did it take long and how did you get hired? Last year I was a tutor 4 days per week at a school, but I am most likely going to just substitute teach this year in order to make contact with more principals. I am probably going to go through Colorado Christian to get my certification once I finally get hired. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?
The bad news Elementary teachers are a dime a dozen.

Therefore, schools will go for the traditonal route teachers in that grade level.

That's just the reality of it.
