I have spent the last five years in college, after only having earned my GED in 2001. A lot happened before, during, and after that time but that is not what I am frustrated about. Between late April and late May I took, and passed, three teaching exams, costing over $500. I have been on numerous job interviews with no success as of yet. I understand that my degree is not in teaching and I have no prior teaching experience; however, I have been an ESE paraprofessional for four years and a substitute teacher before that. I know I am capable of teaching effectively, and I am already studying all the new up and coming changes to classroom assessments and know all about the new technologies. I have determination like nobody's business and I would think the fact that I worked two full time jobs while being a full time student would prove that. I am determined to continue interviewing and I know it will happen when the time is right but I needed somewhere to vent. Thank you Sparkpeople for giving me that venue.
