You're telling me. I was actually really considering going for it but got really disheartened by that announcement (and about 5 friends of mine are 'certified' to teach but took forever to find a non-supply teaching job).
I'm really happy you got in though. You've got tons of experience by this point I bet. :)
Thank you! :D
I had no idea if I'd get in or not because my grades are good, but not spectacular. I'm guessing it was the experience that got me in.
As for jobs.....well Ontario apparently has some sort of a program going with BC. My friend at Ottawa U is doing Teacher's College this year and she was telling me about it. I don't know enough about it at this point, but I will be bugging her about it in a year's time.
Additionally, there's always international schools abroad. I like living in other countries and international schools have good schedules, don't treat you like crap (from what I've heard) and pay very, very well.
Congrats! I did my program in BC a few years back. Unfortunately, due to an over saturation of teachers and poor timing, I never did get to work as a teacher. Hope you enjoy it, because that year goes by FAST.
What are you specializing in?
I'll specialise in English and hopefully History. So what are you doing now if you're not teaching?
Also, sorry about your grandma, Star :(
It was a shock when I lost mine and it took a long time to get over.
