Yesterday I had a second meeting with an advisor about the beginning steps of being admitted to grad school.
Step 1. Get ready for the Praxis 1.
Apparently, I need to get going on this right away as the test scores take awhile to come in. I ordered some study materials and have been looking at sample test questions online. So far it looks like I will be fine. The math is only up to a 10th grade level and the reading/writing won't be a problem for me. I'm still nervous though! I hate tests.
I'm so excited though! I really want to get started right away! As of now I'm definitely getting a reading endorsement and am considering a special education education endorsement. Special ed is in such high demand right now and it could be the difference between getting a job or not getting a job. I understand the commitment that is and I want to observe some special ed classrooms but for now that is what I am leaning towards.
I really hope this works out. Right now it just feels right. I know that I what I am doing now is not something I will be happy doing forever and this feels like something I could be happy doing. I'm going to start subbing on my days off during the week just to get a feel for being in the classroom and see how I like it. I think that will tell me A LOT.
Any teachers out there got advice for me? What endorsements do you suggest?
