I am moving soon to seattle suburb and just learned that i had to have a certification in education to be able to teach as a substite. here in kansas they require 62 credits hours, and a 2 days training and you're good to go. I have a bachelor in business admnistration with no experience. and the only thing beside raising my children (:-) which a full time job)is working as my kids scholl either as sub or just helping around the school when ever I could.
any suggestions will be appreciate it.

Yes, you need a teaching certificate.

Since you're ESL, you might want to look into teaching or aiding ESL classes and programs for recent immigrants.

By state law, YES. However you can get a teaching assistant job without a state teachers certificate. I'm not sure but I think teacher certification is require by all of the states in this country.

Well Kansas has a much lower bar to cross when it comes to education. Here we don't have the throngs of uneducated masses thinking that evolution is less of a theory than creationism . If Kansas only needs 62 credit hours and a couple days training, sheesh, no wonder that state is in such poor shape.

Judging from your grammar, lack of punctuation, misspellings, and obvious inability to research your future job market BEFORE moving here, tells me the state is better off without you teaching. We need and desire educated and intelligent teachers. I wouldn't want my kids being taught by someone who doesn't know how to use grammar or know how to spell "school."

I was going to say the same thing hahaha. You might to learn to spell school right before teaching in "a school."

My wife is a combination Special Education Paraeducator and Classroom Aid, and is able to teach ESL with just her degree, but it's not at teacher pay.

Not only are the state requirements stiffer here, there have been a lot of layoffs, so there are many well qualified teachers looking for jobs.

Not be mean or anything to the OP, but I fully agree.

Get over yourself and your condescension. I'm sure the OP knows how to spell "school"; she (he?) wrote a quick posting on an Internet forum, and didn't proofread. Unheard of!

As to uneducated masses, the creationism stupidity is certainly a trend in Kansas but in no way is Washington immune. Plenty of full-bore religious types around in the more rural sections of the state.

Judging from your policy of judging someone else based on one short forum post, and attributing an obvious typo to a lack of spelling ability, I'd rather have the OP than you.

Somebody pour coffee in your cornflakes this morning?

Have fun with teachers who would rather teach creationism than science!

And ... actually, I like coffee in my cornflakes. With a little sugar and milk. Takes the act of needing to drink my coffee out of a separate container out of the equation and combine my favorite things in the morning. Brilliant!
