    Re: Pass the Praxis/Biology Test
    Mindy Prosperi

    Dear Fellow Teachers... I need your help! I have a degree in
    biology and NJ teaching certification...problem? I got them
    30 years ago! I am now "ready" to be a teacher and belive I
    have a lot to offer. I have been in a career for 30 years
    and traveled extensively both for business and personal
    reasons. I am ready to "give back". Does anyone know of any
    study classes for the biology Praxis? No way I could pass it
    without a class but I think with a little bit of help, I can
    be a good teacher. Any suggestions?
