Hello Folks,

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.
