I got my degree, and my teaching certificate!
It's about damn time too, because I have been waiting for it since JUNE. Now it's late, meaning I can't get a job anywhere unless I get called in by a principal, so all my initial shopping for a teaching job has been for naught so far. Then again, New York has no real openings, because of cutbacks due to No Child Left Behind and shortening budgets that the state has created for itself to better govern numerous overcrowded schools with inadequate conditions, supplies, and sometimes teachers who don't give a damn because they lost their spark to do anything.
Yeah i'm cynical, but it's also true. I find it somewhat ironic, actually, that they have willing graduates who want to help in any way they can, but will not hire anyone because of cutbacks, all induced through the policies of both state and government decree.
But, at least I finally got my certificate, so now I can teach legally, so soon, your children will be in my classroom, learning about history and objectivism.
