I am working on getting certified to teach in Texas. Carter goes to kindergarten next year, so I am going to go back to work. I took my first certification test, of two and was a nervous wreck. I have not taken a test since 2000. I was supposed to be at the testing center at 7:30am and I got lost and didn't make it there until a little after 8. I called Leslie and she gave me verbal directions until I made it. The testing center official still let me take the test, which was a huge relief. The paperwork required that I write in cursive a paragraph that basically said I am who I say I am and I will not cheat. Cursive???? I can't remember the last time I wrote in cursive. The test was a nightmare of me second guessing what the correct answer was. I came out of the test and had no idea if I passed or not. I got the email on Friday with my score. At first glance I thought I had earned a 160, which is the test number, but I passed with a 274. You only need 240 to pass so I am thrilled to be done. My next test is about art, which will be a lot easier for me.
It was such a blessing to have Jenné and Jace visiting. They were able to get everyone off to school. Thanks so much!
