    I am certified elem. ed and Special Education. I got my degree in 1998 and I have been a long term sub for the last two years hoping that this is the year I land something full time. But, I have a question--Do I need to be highly qualified in elementary? I think I saw a Praxis II test for elementary--is this the test I have to take to become "HQ" I just passed the praxis II for Middle school Lang. Arts. Would that automatically make me "HQ" This is all confusing.
    Thanks in advance for light you can shed on this. I want to be able to get a job so I want to have all the proper status to do so.

    Yes, one does need to be HQ for elementary school. Check with your local county office of education, or whatever other governmental authority oversees school districts there in your corner of the Rust Belt, to find out just how.
