What are you doing up this early on a Sunday morning??
I'm 47 and it took me from 1972 -1991 to get all that. Plus the fact, at one
point, once you had certification in any area, you could take the EXCET test
for any other teaching area except speech, and a few others, and IF you
passed the test, you could get the cert.- does that steam you?? it's not like
that any more.
No portfolio review was required to teach art - now for High school, I did
have to have a degree in art to teach it, picky, picky...
and yes,the educational system looks down on art - I feel like Rodney
Dangerfield - get no respect - it's different where you are I gather... Deb W
