I Don't Need No Stinkin' Certificate

I had plans.  Actually I have had many plans.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art (Painting) and one of those plans was to get my teacher's credential and teach, preferably art.  I was about a semester away when my boyfriend and I decided to get married. We hit a hiring freeze for teachers in our area. He has a really good job.  I know I wanted to stay home with the kids so...I never finished.

Fast forward 8 years later and 10 years of teaching art experience.  I have recently been asked to be the Art Masterpiece coordinator for my son's elementary school.  It is the first year for the program and it has been a lot of work.  In case you don't know, Art Masterpiece is a program that uses parent volunteers to teach curriculum themed art projects.  It truly is a great program and I am excited for it to begin.  And since it is the first year and we don't have that many volunteers, it looks like I will be teaching about every other week!  Wow.

I think I may ask for an honorary certificate.

That program is wonderful! I was in college when my kids' school did it, so I couldn't volunteer. I want to be an art teacher. I am subbing now. I went to college after my kids all got in school- but there's a hiring freeze here, too
