    Help please, I am ExCET certified (Elementary English Grades 1-8) - would I be considered Highly Qualified under NCLB to teach English grades 7 and 8? Thank you!

    Do you have your Masters degree in education? My BS is in Interdisciplinary Studies and I tested first for EC-4th grade. To get better chances for finding a job I tested 4-8 ELA/Reading/SS. I think it would be hard to find a job teaching English with a BS in Home Eco, but it depends on which district you're in as well.

    ... thank you but my question was more "technical" - NCLB has highly defined definitions for HQ and I am not sure that my Elementary English Grades 1-8 certification will allow me to legally teach above the elementary level - grade 6. At my school they are saying that grades 7 and 8 are considered secondary and I will have to take the English TExES.

    You might want to take that question to the state licensing honchos, tarainsa.
