That sucks, Griff. Has anyone else ever heard of the super secret test?

Clodfobble 06-25-2007 10:32 PM

I'm sorry Griff. Will this affect your employment situation (i.e., are you on a normal "school" cycle that starts in August/September or is your type of job year-round?)

What's upsetting me tonight is I tried to make a new fried-fish-thing recipe for dinner and it failed spectacularly. I mean really spectacularly; it was only barely edible.

My certification officer is in China so a quick answer on this is not coming. If I have to take the test, it is in leau of a PA form that was to have been filled out during student teaching. Unfortunately, I student taught through a NY school. I had a further student teaching requirement through the PA uni but I guess that when I did it the form wasn't part of the normal mix or wasn't filled out. I can understand how my cert officer dropped the ball because the state rules are a morass, but I specifically asked about this test and was assured that it was not necessary for certification.

At this point I was supposed to have my PA cert in hand. My interviews in New York State have been based on the assumtion that my PA cert was pending and I could seek NY cert based on that. I could be hired if the school wants to fight with the NY dept of Ed saying that a QUALIFIED candidate was unavailable. Yes I do have a Masters of Ed in Special Ed but not taking GWB's major donor's test makes me unqualified to teach in the field.

I'm no longer upset. I'm back in that familiar place of resignation. I will do whatever the man says... Note: If I take this test it will be my sixth ETS test this year @ 50 to 115 bucks per. At least they were all very easy, you know, meaningless.

This too shall pass... you'll be cracking the whip and putting the little vermin though their paces before you know it, Griff.

I broke the passenger side mirror on my brother's truck while using it today. Fortunately, it's a simple mirror--no heating or electronics. But it's still gonna cost me just under $100 to fix it. :(

Sprint.... man, where to start!

skysidhe 06-26-2007 06:52 PM

well Griff, at least you know you'll pass the thing when it comes!At least you didn't take up chef school and that fish dish was your final.:p

That sucks, bro. Hopefully, this will be the last hurdle you have to jump...for a while, anyway. :)
