When I graduated from college and received my teaching certificate, I thought that a five year certificate was a looooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggggg time. Well, it turns out that five years can go by in a flash! We still have one month of school left, but I just submitted the paperwork to renew my certificate so it will be good until 2022. Part of me thinks that that sounds so far away, but I know it will probably fly by just as fast.
I spent quite a bit of time last semester and early this semester studying for the chemistry certification test. I found out about a month ago that I passed! This wasn't official until I filled out the paperwork today to add it to my certificate. I'm planning a blog post soon to share my method for studying for the chemistry certification test. I wanted to wait and make sure I passed the test before I shared!
Now it's official. I'm certified by the state of Oklahoma to teach math and chemistry.
I wonder what the next five years will bring. I know I never could have dreamed of all the amazing things that have happened during my first five years in the classroom. Thanks to the #MTBoS for being there for the entire ride!
