So I was checking my email last night and I got an email from the state of Oregon and I have my teaching license for the state now:) I am pretty excited and so blessed that the process was pretty painless. I am actually surprised the process was so easy – I think I often forget that I am actually a teacher. It was such a long process to get through college and then to actually get a teaching job but I did it. And now I am just waiting for a job. Don’t think I haven’t applied but I would love to work in the Portland Public School District. Every district is waiting for the budget though so I will keep waiting. The license also made me realize how final this is. We are actually moving to Portland and I couldn’t be more excited – bring on the west coast baby.
