    So, I just submitted my paperwork to the county of ed today for my single subject credential!! Wahoo!
    Now, how should I write on my resume that I applied for the science credential, but don't officially have it yet?

    Well, if you know that you meet all of the qualifications, I would write:

    ____ license pending month, 2011

    Yes, just list the name of the credentials like you would with any other, but just remember to put pending.

    I never wrote that I was pending my Math Single Subject. I would say it on the interview. Some schools didn't even call me back until 2 months later and then I had it. You may not want to write it on your resume another possible reason to discard your resume.

    Most applications provide an area for your test scores. That is where I list my extra credentials.

    I list the area of my license in one section and my Praxis II score for middle school science in the other section. If it comes up in the interview, I explain I AM considered "Highly Qualified" to teach Middle School Science, I just haven't received my updated license from the DPI yet. So I include a copy of my current license along with a printout of the official results from my Praxis II test.

    I did list "certification pending in Middle School Science" on my resume' as well.
