don't lie, you can try to hide the truth by watering it down, but don't actually lie...if they catch you in an actual lie, that is grounds for firing...
have you considered subbing? that will get you into the district...even an aide job to start...hopefully after a year, you will get a permanent position. As a sub, ask for long term positions such as maternity leave replacement.
