Hi all. I was wondering if you could help me out. I know the new certifications are B-2 and 1-6. If you have the 1-6 cert, are you able to teach kindergarten? I was under the impression the answer was NO. However, I am being told that you are allowed to teach one grade above and one grade below your cert. Is there any truth to this? Is this a rule that was bent in the ny city system? Any clarification is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
