Disaster! Bah!

I have spent the last week trying to figure out how to get a Utah Teaching Certificate! HOPING IT IS WORTH IT!

So far...

Background Check $74
Fingerprints $20
Praxis Test 9/17 $130
(Anyone taken the Praxis? I'm going to have to study.)

I still have to figure out if its worth the $$$ to add my endorsements to the UT Certificate. Or if they will even transfer. Man. Any thoughts?

I want to try to add Early Childhood and Reading Specialist. If I have to test for them, I won't add them.

The certification/ licensing is very different. I am more qualified in AZ than I will probably ever be here.

All I want is to have a classroom and a name plate... and adorable kids and apples... recess... crayons... copy machines... AH, I miss it all!
