Thank You UTT

So here I am 2 months & 1 week after graduation & I'm finally almost finished with UT Tyler. haha And I mean that in the best of ways. As of today I've FINALLY gotten my recommendation for teacher certification. There was some hold up due to me student teaching in a different area & UTT didn't have me fill out some necessary paperwork. But it's all said & done now! I should receive my certification soon. For those of you who don't know I completed my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies & am certified to teacher Early Childhood (EC)- 4th grade as a generalist teacher and also EC-12 in Special Education. I also received my diploma this week which was also very exciting. I look forward to getting that all framed up to hang with Josh's.

Although I have been applying for teaching positions over the last few months; I came out empty handed (except for subbing). BUT recently many of the local school districts have released the dates of their job fairs for the 2010-2011 school year. I am really looking forward to these job hunting experiences. My 1st pick of positions would be in PPCD (Pre-School Programs for Children with Disabilities) but mainly I want to work in special education & prefer to work with the students with severe and profound disabilities. But we'll see how the job hunting process works out. I'll be sure to keep you guys updated!

**in my next post I hope to share some stories & pictures from our Mini-Moon (short honeymoon) trip!
