Wow...Talk about a intense couple of weeks I have had. This last week the culmination of everything that I have been doing this year as an educator seemed to collide. First my BTSA binder was due, which changes a teachers preliminary credential to a cleared one. I couldn't believe after I first started teaching that I had to basically do an additional 2 years of busy work just to get my real credential. Perhaps my frustration came from the fact that I had an awesome experience with Cal Poly Pomona's department of education preparing me so well. So 3 years into teaching and I finally finished the BTSA requirements to get my cleared credential...YES!
Ok... so that was thing number one. This week has also reminded me of why back-ups are so crucially important as my computer went BOOM I found out the logic board was dead. Well no big deal right... it only had what... my 3 class projects and a lit review. Well unfortunately I was able to pull some of the stuff from the hard drive before it went completely dead, but it has meant that I have had to play catch up this week on top of the BTSA stuff. There was one good thing that did come from the destruction of my precious imac, I got to go to the apple store for its replacement. Apple Store + ME = (kid in a candy store). So I ended up getting the computer I have been thinking about since I entered the EMM (educational multimedia program), the Apple Mac Pro.
Ok if you thought it was over guess agin. On top everything I also had to keep up on teaching and getting grades entered into the computer.
Whew this has been a non-stop week, but at least it'll be behind me soon enough, I just hope that I'm caught up on everything by the time it gets here.
