What is good advice to get prepared for Teacher Certification Exams?
I am currently studying an undergraduate degree on Middle School Education in Texas. Although I am about to start my second year of college, I will be graduating earlier than usual and would like to start getting prepared for the certification tests. I am kind of concerned since I am an international student from Mexico and I am not yet 100% familiarized with the American education system, and I think it would be key to perform better on the tests.

I would also brush up on your basic exams skills. I’m not sure how Texas does it, but Georgia requires we take entrance exams. You may not have to, and in this case, study whatever content you want to teach (SS, Math, Science, etc.) If you are gonna be a career tech teacher, study that particular subject in advance.
Go to a middle school and ask to volunteer, if you decide not to be a substitute teacher. I recommend the substitute teaching so you know the schedule, how things work, network with other teachers and you also make $$$ while doing it.
Good luck hun. I’m almost done with certification. I have completed all my courses and anticipating the final exams .
If you have any questions, let me know. I would love to help!
1. Earn a bachelor's degree in elementary education.
2. Complete an internship in an elementary school classroom.
3. Take your state's licensing exams for elementary teachers.
4. Apply for a license through your state board of education.
5. Once you have received your license, begin applying for open positions.
Are you planning to stay here or return to Mexico when you graduate?
