    Re: certification

    Hi Sarah,
    You are smart to be thinking about this a year before you will
    be graduating. I am new to DE this, too, had to meet
    certification requirements for DE. Jaime pointed you in the
    right direction by going to the DE Dept. of Educ. site. (setting
    up a DEEDS account) That's where I started...had to take the
    Praxis 2 (Content Knowlegde)...was exempt from the Praxis 1
    becuase of my prior teaching experience. I did want to add that
    there is a pretty large 2 day teaching job fair held at the
    Univ. of DE (each April) called 'Teach Delaware Day and Project
    Search' (think that's correct) It was there that I made the
    contact for my new position. Having Special Ed. certification
    should really help you too. Good luck!

    Sarah (yes, another Sarah)
    **if you need to take the Praxis 2, I would suggest you take it
    long before you have to. I took it last Sept. knowing I
    wouldn't be returning to teaching until this school year...would
    have plenty of time to retake it if I didn't pass the first
    time. (I don't do well under pressure)...Well, couldn't sleep
    the night before...less than an hour of sleep (contemplated not
    showing up as I was exhausted), but indeed went, and received
    the 'Recognition of Excellence' certificate for my
    score...highest I'd scored on any test. Maybe I would have done
    better on the SAT (years ago) if I hadn't slept! If you do have
    to take the Praxis 2, let me know and I'll share the resources I
    used to prepare.
