I know backgrounds and stuff but what about college transcripts? My GPA was low last semester and I've withdrawn from classes so there's "W" on it a lot. I'm just concerned about not being able to get a teaching job because of this.Answer Question

You need at least a BA and state certification. They will look at your transcripts and GPA. Administrators want to see that you scored very well in all of your " teaching" courses. I am talking As. They also want letters of recommendation, reviews from principals (during student teaching) and college professors. Having an endorsement on your certificate helps a lot, especially if it is in reading or SPED. During an interview they are going to see how knowledgeable you are when it comes to guided reading, assessments, differentiated instruction, etc. Teaching now a days is a VERY competitive field, at least in my state. Every ONE position open can have up to 200 applicants.
As the PP stated, many lay offs are also occurring unfortunately. That doesn't mean other districts are not hiring. It just means thecompetition is FAR GREATER. You'll be applying against experienced teachers laid off from other districts.
