Special Ed Endorsement--Check!

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Special Ed Endorsement--Check!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Today was a darling-free day because Bobby and I were both scheduled to take the special-ed PRAXIS exam this afternoon. (PRAXIS exams are used to certify teachers in particular areas. I've already taken English and Principles of Learning and Teaching [PLT] for middle and high school, but the state requires me to have special ed as well, since I teach in a special-ed school.)

I blew both the English and PLT tests out of the water, getting the highest score possible on the English test and a high enough score on both tests to receive a Recognition of Excellence award for being in the 85th percentile or above. Of course, I think that the AP tests that I took as a high school student were more difficult, but a feather in one's cap is a feather in one's cap, regardless.

I blew the special-ed test out of the water too. The highest possible score is 200. I got a 199. My goal was to get Recognition of Excellence for all three of my tests; it seems they don't do ROE for all tests--not sure if they do for special ed or not--but I think I likely would have qualified, if they did.

Bobby also passed, so this means that we have our endorsements in special ed and now have everything that we need to continue in our current school.

  • Congratulations! Well done!
    Do you have to take the exams again to renovate the endorsement?
  • Congrats! You worked for it.

  • Congratulations!
  • Most Excellent!!! Congratulations to you both! :-)
  • Congrats! It's good to know you've got that all covered.

    I agree that the Praxis II exams aren't exactly super challenging, but then again, I felt they covered the basics well enough that if someone did struggle with them...they probably aren't prepared to teach that subject, either.

    So, congrats on passing with flying colors :)
  • Excellent! ... Hermione
