Well, that's not exactly what he said, but it's how it feels. Apparently two engineering degrees is not enough math to teach math and a chemical engineering degree is not enough chemistry to teach chemistry. I got a list of the classes I would have to take to "remediate" on each subject matter *on top* of having to get a complete degree in education. Interestingly, one of the courses I would apparently have to take is English. Oh, and biology. To teach math or chemistry.
To be fair, this person is selling a product - his college. It's a sale he did not close. I spoke with the superintendent of schools in my town in November and she was much more encouraging than this. I have a few more things to check out, but if they come across like this one - teaching is something I'll put on the way back burner. I've got enough going on that I'm not qualified for, these days. I think I'm going to wrap myself up in a blanket and pout a bit. ... Back soon ...
It's hard to stay down with an orange cat sitting on my chest licking my nose. I think animals know when we're low. Sometimes a nose lick or two is just the thing!
