I received an email today that I was accepted into the October cohort of the Florida TeacherReady program! In nine months, I will have completed the program, and will be well on my way to receiving teaching certification in the State of Florida! All this really means, is, technically, I should be certified by the end of the summer!
No more of this assistant business.
I also am going through the application process to get my driver's license. I am now so thankful that we didn't do too much about the license in the past 2 years, because effective 1 October (and retroactively in my case,) people holding a valid US license since before 2001 will only ever be required to take the theoretical driver's exam. No practical exam, and even more wonderful, no driving hours. In all, it is about a 1000 Euro savings. I will bring my application to the Rathaus (town hall,) on Thursday morning. I should receive the study materials for the exam in about a week, and in about 3 weeks, I should be ready to take my test! I am so excited to finally get my driver's license, and a large piece of my independence!
Looks like its time to break open a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbly!
