    No, it's in progress. Should I write, in progress. I searched online and one site said to write when I plan to get it. I just got in and since I'm basically starting over, it'll take me a few years to finish up, especially if I'm working in the meantime.

    Your welcome. And I think it sounds good...though I think I would put "at risk" instead of intensive on the RTI line. And what does "relias" mean?

    I think it looks good, I might say what TAPPLE and EDI are, though and I agree with STG about the RTI part not making sense and I might change it to "Taught at risk students in small group situations using multiple strategies for RTI (or something like that)." Good luck Peachy!

    Jessica, thanks for your input. TAPPLE stands for Teach, ask, pause, pick a nonvolunteer, listen, effective feedback. It seemes so long, which is why I didn't bother putting in my resume and was going to mention it in my cover letter. What do you all think??

    Wow, that is long, I think if you're going to mention it your cover letter it would be fine.

    You could say anticipated for the 2011 degree. I did that when I was applying and didn't have the Masters yet.

    I think I put
    College, Degree, anticipated May 2006

    But other than that I think your resume is great!
