    I am an intern who just started the first year. I have a choice of trying to complete my training with MMTTC in Evanston, IL in one year, or two. I am leaning towards two years since there is so much to absorb. May I have the words and advice of teachers who have completed their training in both one year and two? Thank you for your time!

    Well, considering I got my bachelors degree in 3-6 and my masters degree in 6-9, I'm not the one to answer this question.

    I would say that it really depends on the experience. If you have a great staff to support you during this time and they are very directed, then one year may be enough.

    However, if you find yourself enjoying multiple grades, wanting to see a variety of tricks of the trade, two years may prepare you better if you have the time. I know that working with as many students and teachers as possible was what truly prepared me to teach!
