    I'm going to be a first year intern this year, and I'm still in my credential program. Who else is a first year intern??? Maybe we could form a support group of interns?? Let me know if you're up for this.:)

    I am a first-year intern as well. I've accepted a job at the high school level in special education and I am so excited! I've overheard some special ed aides saying that they don't appreciate interns because they are so "wet behind the ears." I figure, I'll show them! But I definitely am going into this with a lot of questions!

    Hello fellow southern californians! I am an intern out here too. :) Congratulations to you both! Count me in on any support groups. I am still suffering through the credential program too. I did get to teach last semester for the first time. It was a lot of survival planning. I am a bit nervous for my first full year, my own class (I was taking over as the 5th teacher before)...yikes!

    National is based out of La Jolla, but they have locations all over. I do the online program which is great, with working and kids!! It's so nice to do homework in your pj's if you want!!!

    I didn't even know they had credential programs online. Wow - that's so cool for you! I'm at Cal Baptist in Riverside for the credential program, which is really amazing but sooooooo expensive. I'm looking into other schools for a Master's degree in the near future.

    I'm also a first year special education teacher in Southern California (SFV) through the LAUSD DI Program. I would love to be in this support group.

    ICanDoThis, I graduated from CBU in May. I attended the High Desert campus. I decided not to get my credential from them though because they didn't offer a program in the high desert and I didn't feel like spending all that money in gas to drive down to Riverside.
    I'm enrolled at Chapman University for my credential (high desert campus). I'll be teaching high school Algebra Readiness and Geometry.

    Does anyone know of a store in the Inland Empire other than Lakeshore that I can buy supplies from? I'm trying to get ideas for my classroom.

    Hey there,

    No longer an intern, but that's how I started. I too went to CSUSB.

    Shawsome, I'm no longer in Cali, but was from the IE. Do you know where the Galleria Mall is on Tyler in Riverside?

    If you head towards Best Buy and pass Jack in The Box, there is one on the right hand side. The name escapes me. I liked them because they were cheaper than Lakeshore.

    Chokita, I just finished my first year too. I'm currently doing my three-week general education fieldwork. What cohort do you belong to?

    Hi Everyone :)

    I'm in a program in Socal too! I'll be doing my ST January to June next year, but am doing all the basic fieldwork now. I'd love to be in on a support group to hear everyone's experiences too...
