Some big news to share!...and no, its not a baby
Universities and colleges throughout the state of Maryland offer programs for career changers like me. I applied for the MCERT program through UMD back in November, had an interview at the beginning of January, and found out last week that I had been accepted. Some of you may be thinking this is the first time you've heard of this and you'd be right. I didn't tell many people because I figured if I didn't get in, the less people I would have to tell. But I got in and now can tell the whole world!
The program starts in June and is a 13month, full-time program. At the end of it I will have my M.Ed in Elementary Education and be eligible for certification in the state of Maryland. I will take 12 credits this summer and starting with the school year, I will student teach full time for the entire school year while taking 2-3 evening classes. It's a demanding course but I am very excited and looking forward to it. God has certainly blessed me with this opportunity and I can't wait to start!
