Hello everyone! Next year I will be moving to Florida (from California) and am wondering the process (is it similar to California?: Bachelor Degree, CBEST, CSET, RICA, Program, 2-Year Preliminary Credential=Teaching Credential). I did some googling but felt a bit overwhelmed and discouraged with results. I came across that nearly 1,000 teachers lost their job because they couldn't pass the state test . This was very discouraging for me to see since I had passed my CBEST and all my CSETS; excluding the math CSET. I have my degree in Child Development and want to teach specifically lower elementary. I read that there is a specific PreK-3 credential in Florida, but I am now concerned with the State Test since so many people failed. Or is there different state testing depending on credential? I feel lost so I am hoping some Florida teachers can lead me in the right direction thanks everyone!
