What grade level do you teach and what did you have to do, especially while in college to prepare for your career. I'm think about being a high school history teacher. I'm going in between law and education and I don't know what to do. I'm a second year in college by the way, majoring in history.

I'm thinking about going into education, as a high school english major. I'm in my 2nd year of college as well. So far I've just been taking my required classes.

The PRAXIS is a teacher certification test that most states require you to pass before you can teach in their state. Each state has their own acceptable score requirements.  The PRAXIS I is a basic skills test of math, reading, and writing.  The PRAXIS II is the subject matter test for the subject you want to teach (social studies, math, English, physical education).  Some states have their own basic skills and/or subject matter exams.

I tried to do a quick Google search of all states.  Just because there is no more extra information other than PRAXIS next to a state doesn't mean they don't have their own exam.  Again, I quickly Googled all the states so it is possible I could have missed something--please correct me if I did.  Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, and Massachusetts will not accept the PRAXIS at all (I believe).

The website to the PRAXIS is www.ets.org/praxis

I thought about becoming a teacher simply because I like to work with kids. I think if I decide to go that route I would like to be a TESOL simply because of the language background I'm currently developing.
