    I did not LET my certification expire. I renewed twice since 1992, and
    then just got caught up in my other part-time jobs. I have not taught
    full-time since my kids were born (1999) and now that my youngest is in
    school, am thinking about getting back in the classroom. When I checked
    my certificate, it had just expired a few months before. I wish MTA
    would have some sort of notification if expiration is approaching. I am
    not a part of an elementary school district/private school that might
    help teachers stay on top of that. I'm all for the lifetime
    certification, as the true test of a good teacher is what really happens
    in the classroom, not on a piece of paper. I have a master's degree and
    great credentials, just unfortunately missed the mark on this.
