BUT! I was stupid and young, in fact i recieved this charge 20 days after turning 18. It is NOT indicitive of who i am as a person now....I am 26. I got caught with it BEFORE i even decided to be a teacher. So now i am close to graduating and i am concerned about getting a job. Does anyone know any principals, or are there any principals on this forum that can tell what they think about applicatnts such as myself? I keep thinking that they will see the conviction (misdemeanor--small amount of marijuana) on the app. and put it aside and look for one that doesnt have one. Can anyone tell me anything aboiut my situation? Thank you!
