Well. Not only did I not pass, the review panel made an immediate request that the Oklahoma Department of Human Services come and collect my children. Seems I shouldn’t be around anyone under the age of 21. It sure is quiet here without the little boogers.
Or not. (And I actually have three neighbor kids in the house in addition to my own four.)
It took me longer to dress for the review than what the actual review took. She asked me why I wanted to teach, why I entered the alternative certification program, what I could bring to the classroom and what makes a ninth grader different than a senior. Then she said she’d recommend the board approve me and I should expect a letter of approval around Feb. 1.
So that opens up another avenue in the job search, anyway.
