I don’t live by the beach and I look nothing like this, but this is what my heart feels like doing right now!! I am finally a Georgia certified teacher!!! This is a HUGE day for me and feels like a serious triumph. I submitted my initial application for certification at the end of June and, due to issues on the University of Southern California’s end (meaning they didn’t do their job correctly), it took until today for my certification to be granted. I can now start substitute teaching in January and *hopefully* be offered a teaching position soon!! Hallelujah!
