Hey everyone! I've been a part of this forum since the beginning of my college career, and I appreciated the advice of hundreds of educators. I'm going to start student teaching next week, and I'm already seeing the merit of this group. Seriously, thank you! My question is about how valuable an additional certification would be in my case. I will already have a secondary mathematics certification, and I found out that I qualify for an add-on certification in computer programming based on my course work. I would only need to take and pass a Praxis II in Computer Science to complete the requirements for the certification. Is it worth the $120, though? What merits are there to an add-on certification? I'm in an area with a lot of teacher schools, so I really need to stand out to be in a position to get a local job. Most teachers are on a salary schedule, so it's not like I would get a raise or anything. What say you all? Is it worth it? Have you noticed having additional areas of certification as a benefit for you? Thanks again!
