Hi! Need some help here. I am moving to a different state. I currently work in a private school and want to switch to public. I still need to take my praxises (praxi??) and get the new state's teaching certificate (my private school didn't require any of this). I was thinking that applying to be a sub in the public system will help me get my foot in the door, but I have others say that is how I will be looked at always. A sub. I don't think that is fair since I have taught as lead teacher for 5 years and I am a department head in my current school. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!
