Hello, everyone here! My name is Jen. I just joined after searching the NJ DOE websites for 6 hours about certification. I go to school in NYC and currently working towards my 2nd Master's degree. (1st - art ed. 2nd - early child ed + special ed dual) My school has early childhood and special ed dual program but Early child edu covers from Birth to 2nd grade. I will be moving to NJ this summer so I want to be certified in NJ since there is no point of doing NY certification which is 10 times harder. I have few questions here. 1. NJ early childhood has to be PRE-K ~ 3rd grade. But my school has an Early child ed prgram from Birth ~ 2nd grade. Does this mean I am NOT qualified for NJ certification since we didnt cover 3rd grade? 2. What exams do I need to take? Praxis II 5022 only? or Praxis II 5022 + 0022 ? Or something else? I am confused! :'( 3. I will have dual degree in Early child ed and special ed. I looked through NJ websites and Special ed in NJ does not require test. Am I right? Do I just send my diploma + etc and not a single test to be certified? Thanks for reading my long long story and taking your time to answer.
