GPA and Job Seeking in Pennsylvania?

I am about to receive certification in elementary ed. My undergrad GPA was only 2.75, but my post-bacclaurate GPA is 3.64. I was wondering what would happen when I go job searching. Will they care about my undergrade (which was not in education) or will they just mainly focus on the 3.64 in Elementary ed? I really don't want to be denied a job based on 10-year-old grades.

    They will focus more on your work as a graduate student. The most important things are your success in student teaching and your interview plus recommendations. Do not be surprised if you have a hard time getting a job as there are many experienced teachers who are having a hard time.
