I have two questions:

I have a BA in English, with an emphasis in writing. I have over 15 years' experience working as a journalist, marketing copywriter, editor, and proofreader.

I've also taught English and Journalism at the college level.

Are there any support or networking groups for Language Arts/Humanities/English/ESL/ELA teachers anywhere in Colorado? I have not been able to find anything concrete on the CDE or DPS websites.

479 Thanks for this response. I have recently received a Statement of Eligibility; which I guess means that now I may apply for English teaching positions and then when offered one take whatever courses may be required during that first year or two? So when looking for English teaching jobs, just tell everyone that I have a Statement of Eligibility fro...See More

jesusita I'm not familiar with the Statement of Eligibility, but it's certainly a start. I do know that this Saturday, March 26 CASPA is holding a job fair for the Metro area. You need to register in advance, and the cost is $20. Google CASPA and it should come right up. In all honesty, I would look into Charter Schools. They are given a lot more flexibilit...See More

479 The CASPA job fair is closed to anyone else trying to get in. I checked their website. I bought tix to another, upcoming one, though. I'll start checking the charter schools as well, and thanks for the input.
