Greetings,

Am interested in Teaching, maybe. Taught grade 6 for 3 years in Antigua/Barbuda. Three wonderful years and would love to maybe do it again when I arrive. I understand Praxis are required along with my Bachelors, is this correct? Is this a complicated process? Please any info. you care to share.

PRAXIS is just a standardized test. As I understand it, teachers here have to have both Praxis I and Praxis II, which is a federal requirement for Highly Qualified status. The Praxis II is specific to the level and subject you plan to teach.

Public schools require a degree and certification (another state's certification counts). Private schools prefer degrees, experience and certification but the smaller ones that can't afford to pay much might be worth approaching if you are short in any of the previously mentioned items.

The public schools are not easy to get into despite the news articles indicating a need for teachers. Many mainland teachers that I have spoken to have never received a call after all the required paperwork was submitted... despite degrees, certification and experience.
