Hey, everybody. During lunch today, I saw a flyer in the guidance office for teachers that are seeking master's degrees. I got my standard teaching certificate via Alternate Route for the State of New Jersey. I did take the alternate route classes at Rutgers, Center for Effective School Practices. To be honest, I feel like there's so much I didn't learn. You know, I've been thinking about this profession a lot and what makes a wonderful, effective English teacher. I feel like there's so much I haven't learned, that I have to learn by trial and error. I don't have the money, honestly, but I was contemplating going back to school for a Master of Arts in Teaching. I don't know if this is the right move because I someday want to be a college professor and obtain a PhD in English Literature. Do you think Alternate Route really prepared me for this job? I feel like there's a lot I need to fix and work on. I just didn't know if PD was enough or if I should seek more education. Your guidance means the world to me, you guys. Thank you so much. Stay blessed.
