Evaluation test scores?
When you're applying for positions, do the districts care what your PLACE or PRAXIS test scores were?
Also, anyone around here in the alternative licensing program? What's your experience been like?

Survey: Please help me with my action research project! :)
I am doing an action research project for grad school about using dramatic activities in the content classroom. I made a survey online for classroom teachers. It would help me soooooo much if you could fill out the survey.
Thanks so much!!! It would help me soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!

Has anyone done this, or know someone who has? I'll be starting the process ASAP. I came off the IDLA program at UNC last December, but didn't do student teaching due to lack of financial aid.
I'd love to hear from anyone who was or is in the program.

ETA: We're on a 4-day calendar. We go Mon-Thurs with Fridays off. Students go 8-4. Some Fridays we have inservices. (We just had our first half-day inservice today that we will get a stipend for. I believe they are scheduled for every other Friday.)

Teaching for testing...
Here in NM, the teachers I've worked with seem to be constantly testing their students. Some teachers I've talked to were thinking of getting out of the field because according to them, there was no time to instruct students. They'd teach for a week or two, and then go right back to testing. I don't know how much of this is true.
Two weeks in March are "state testing" weeks. The whole darn lunch, recess, and activities schedule are compromised because of the stupid testing. These test go on throughout the day and we were not even allowed to take our special needs children out in certain areas because they made too much noise! But, this is something that I expect. However, in April students begin A2L testing (for the district) and this seems to go on forever! It's done on computer, so that means that up until the last three weeks of school, the computer room is unusable!
All the teachers are telling me that it is like this everywhere. I don't remember it being like this when I taught in California. Is it like this in Colorado?

I hope to be moving to Colorado within two years, and would like to start teaching soon after I get there. I have a couple of questions....
I found out that Colorado only requires me to pass the teacher content area test. I forgot the name. Is it available to me over here in New Mexico?
What are some of the better and some of the worst districts in Denver?
That's all for now. I probably won't have much to contribute so I apologize in advance for that. Thanks for the help!

My name is Jenifer, I'm 27 and I live in Denver. I am not a teacher, though I am going to school (Metro) to become a counselor for teens. I am joining this community for two reasons: a) I will probably be working closely with schools and teachers when I enter into my career and b) my boyfriend is currently studying to become a History teacher.
I probably won't be posting much and will instead just hang out on the sidelines learning what I can. I just wanted to intoduce myself so that I wouldn't be a creepy lurker. ;)

Hi all! :) I'm in the process of moving to Colorado from South Florida in just a few weeks! I am excited to be a part of the Colorado teaching community!
