    So, after teaching in the classroom for 13 years, then finally using my certification in Literacy to become a Literacy specialist (AIS Intervention) with small groups this year, I realized exactly what it is I need to do....go for my administration certification! Now, this is not something that I always wanted to do. I have a strong passion for literacy instruction and hope to soon get a job as a literacy leader of some sort. I don't necessarily want to become a Principal or anything like that. But I'm realizing that this is the next phase in my career. I would love to teach teachers the best practices in literacy or have a hand in curriculum development. But I am a bit nervous! Has anyone ever made this transition into administration after teaching for some time? How did it go? Other than a pay increase, what are the pros/cons? I have to do 600 hrs. for my internship in order to get my certification. Not looking forward to that. lol. But any information you can share will be great! :thumb:
