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.
