I Passed!

All elementary teachers in my district are being required to add ESL to our 
teaching certification by next January or not have our contracts renewed.
I have had many sleepless nights and stressful days in my attempt to pass this test. 
I took the ESL test once in November and was unsuccessful. I cried and felt like a loser.
 I decided to get a better attitude, work with a tutor and come up with a plan to pass!  I just wanted to get it over with. I studied my &$@& off for two weeks, and took the test on Tuesday morning. I am on spring break this week so I felt pretty rested! My stomach was doing flips and it took me 3 hours to take the 70 question test. I finally got the email today that the scores were posted and I passed!  
I cried and felt sick as I tried to open the testing site from my IPhone while my husband was driving.
Thank goodness it is over. I can now concentrate on the last 9 weeks of teaching ART and cooking the recipes we fixed at my birthday cooking class this week!

I thought of this funny Homer Simpson show for some reason!!!
I do feel so SMART!


  1. YEAH! Congrats. I am sure it feels great to be done!

  2. how stressful! glad to hear it's over with and you can get back to teachin:)

  3. Yes! I was spending so much time on the studing process. It was a very hard test for me, who has been out of school a LONG time!
