Hi I just got my SOE from Colorado and am confused on this process. Do I just start applying to district directly and tell them I will be in the alternative license program? And for anyone who knows, what are the chances of finding a job now that the school year just started? I am guessing I will be out of luck for this year. I will be teaching secondary mathematics for anyone who knows of an opportunity and I am in Fort Collins so would love any help.

Thanks, Hope to be new teacher Nick

Booklady Thanks for the information. By the way, that is not all that has changed on the education scene since I did my student teaching--it used to be fun and the kids did learn! I keep thinking--"All work and no play make Jack a very dull boy." I hope the circle swings around again --test zombies is not what life is about.
