Hi Everyone! I was wondering if anyone has any experience with teaching high school and going into elementary. I a full year replacement for a teacher on maternity leave in a high school. I have to say that I do enjoy teaching, however I find that I am always overwhelmed by how many students I have (151 to be exact). Also I have discovered that it is a challenge for me to always find activities that keep my students engaged in learning. It was much easier and I enjoyed being with middle school students more (I completed both my junior field and senior field of student teaching in a middle school setting). Anyway here is my question. I graduated with an English degree and certification in Secondary Education (K-12). I took the Praxis II and passed. Do you think that taking the Praxis I would help my chances in being considered for elementary and middle school teaching positions for the following year? Any advice will be appreciated.
