Are you bilingual? Can you pass the 190 BTLPT that tests
that? ESL and Bilingual are two different things in Texas. The
"ESL" certifies you on a delivery method of teaching. Bilingual
is very different. For those of you that are fluent in reading,
writing and speaking, take the 190-BTLPT. You also will have
to do the 291 Core Subjects EC-6 and the 164 Bilingual
Supplemental. Don't be a crying dumbass about paying $135
for the tests. You are also an idiot if you accept anything
beyond $51-$55k your first year of teaching. Save 164 for
last. Pass the BTLPT and show the report to a school district.
They will have their nose up your butt in seconds. You can't
get hired with just that, but if you can pass that you can pass
291 EC-6. SPEND THE DAMN MONEY with certifyteacher.org
for the big assignment. Go to www.texasteachers.org > Study
and actually study! You made it through college, so why is
this any different?
