I was wondering if anyone has any input on the difficulty of getting a SPED job without certification. I am in grad school at Liberty working on my certification, but want a job teaching before the Spring semester, so that I can avoid student teaching. The way I understand it I am eligible for a provisional license after I complete an introductory SPED course, which I will complete October 9th. I'm half done with my graduate degree, with 19 hours completed.

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm also provisionally certified in Special Ed, and I'm about halfway through my certification. I've had so much difficulty finding a job in this area I'm focused on Northern Virginia. I've gotten a ton of interviews in Fairfax County, and I just got one in Alexandria this week. Should I move up there I'm going to transfer to George Mason.

I do, however, have an interview at Hermitage HS on Monday. We'll see how it goes.

Good luck. Special Ed. is in demand, but their is a lot of smoke around the whole provisional issue when it comes to applying.
