As of about 16 minutes ago, I am down to the last two requirements before I finish my full teaching certificate. I had a stack of electronic documents I have been needing to submit since last spring. Today I sat down and finally finished all of them. All that is left is a test review course and one, last state exam. Hopefully I can knock out the review this week and get scheduled for the exam by the end of the month.
I have until the end of the semester and normally I WOULD wait until the bitter end. But The Boss Lady wants to go on vacation in November. And I assume that she would like me to have a paying job next January, too. So I guess I better hit the review books soon.
When I started this teaching adventure the list of To-do’s did not look too bad. After the lay off last Spring, my motivation disappeared and I was not sure how hard I wanted to work on the whole thing. When I re-hired I was committed to finishing my certification up but the start of this school year has blown by a LOT quicker than I ever imagined it might (as evidenced by my abandoning this blog). Last week I had my intern supervisor sign off that I would indeed make a decent teacher and that I should receive my certificate.
So all that is left is the review and the test. Bring ‘em on!
