Hello, I would like to teach mathematics, I would like to start with young kids and then if I can, move to high school kids. I went to school in another country so I am not sure about it. What are the ages for middle school? Is it true that I need to take test 0014 (elementary education) before i get certify for middle school math? When I called my local dept of ED I was advised that since I didn't go to a school for teaching that was the way to do it. I went to a regular 4 years university for computer science and math and now i would like to change carreer. Please advise!!! Also, what books do you recommend for studying for this subject? can I take this test before elementary educt?
