#Education, is my CA preliminary single subject (secondary) credential valid in Illinois or Iowa?

I’ve had my credential in secondary English for three years (!) and have yet to find a permanent teaching job in Los Angeles. I’m tired of subbing. I’m concerned about getting BTSA/induction started, provided I could get hired full-time if I decide to move by the summer.

My initial Googling tells me a California credential should generally be transferable, but I might have to take additional classes or an exam or two. Which exam, though? What kinds of classes? (I understand I’d have to file things and allow bureaucracy to run its course, but I’d like to be able to apply for jobs for fall 2013 in these states as well.)

Any websites or resources are appreciated!

[Any thoughts from PPT or GWALP??]
