Thank you for all of your advice. Seeing how I am from NH,
(being a New Englander) I have not had too much trouble
like "Georgia". I network pretty well and talked to lots of
teachers to find the best way to go about getting a job in
CT. This thread is one of those "networking" things I set
Yes... it helps I am SPED certified, I have taken and passed
the Praxis I and II, and my certification paper work has
already been submitted. I am now just finishing putting my
application packets together, and I am good to go.
I am a very confident person, and when I am driven for
something, I will go after it, and achieve it to the best of
my ability. I try to teach my students this as well
(practice what you teach right?) I understand CT is
demanding... but NE is just as demanding. I am proud to be
apart of such a highly reguarded (education wise) region of
the country. Although, I still have not lost track why I
went to school be a teacher, to teach inner city kids. I
know, some think it is crazy... but I love it... and I am
happy that eventhough through this processes I didn't loose
sight of that... and that makes me very proud of myself.
So "Georgia", I understand where you are coming from... and
as an educator you should be respected. It takes a lot of
courage to move your entire career and life. I hope you get
the respect you deserve. It is tough in "these parts",
people can be snutty, but that doesn't represent everyone.
Good luck, and thank you everyone for the help and advice.
More is welcome!
