    It depends on the rules in your state, look at the state board of education site. However, if they are desperate enough they can get you emergency certification, pending your full certification

    I'm an NYC public schoolteacher as well and I just sat through all the new teacher orientations about certification :) Do you have a letter from your college/university saying they have recommended you to the state for certification? And if not, can you get one? If so, then all you have to do once you pass the CST is make sure you stay on top of the paperwork, and eventually your certification will come through and you'll be fine. In any case, let the principal know and see what she can do as far as discretionary leeway. Good luck!
