I can definitely see being happy to get someone who actually knows how to be a teacher. I wonder though what's up with trying to get credentialed in Illinois. I wonder if it's that difficult or if maybe she's just lacking something Illinois requires and doesn't feel like doing it.<quoted text>
The schools do love a sub who has a teaching degree. My neighbor across the street has never successfully transferred her teaching certificate to IL but she's registered to sub in three different districts and could sub every single day of the school year if she wanted. She basically gets first choice of any sub position.
But I think she may be one of very few subs any of those districts has who has any form of teaching degree. And, as I said, she hasn't been able to get credentialed in Illinois for some reason. She's never told me why.
That's the reason I didn't renew my cosmetology license when I moved back to Washington. They were all "well you let it expire while you were gone and we've changed the rules so your 30 years of experience doesn't count for shitso you have to go and take all the testing all over again."
What? Seriously? I've been licensed, in good standing, with zero problems in 8 different states for like 30 years and all of a sudden you want to test me like I just learned thisshit last week. I don't think so. Very offensive. Don't need it anyway, it's just a habit to keep them all active...just in case, but since I'm never ever doing another hair cut ever in my life, bite me. <shrug and flip them off>
