I Only Wish

I have learned some many wonderful techniques and procedures while working in the public school system of Georgia, However this is open Mic ... Right ? I only wish that my admin would have given me more insight regarding the process and procedure of NTI ,from the admission process to Financial Aid . The financial aid process was very unexpected , for the simple reason I was already enrolled with another 4 year college . I was unaware of the cost of NTI , which then cause me to withdrawal from the college I was attending . This course however has been very enlightening ,after teaching Cosmetology in private sector for over 14 years . I currently have a more profound understanding what teaching is all about . Well currently I'm preparing two new Cosmetology Teachers in my School district for NTI . I'm giving them constant updates and advice to be successful in the program . And as far as the district goes, the administration from various districts should spend at least a week in NTI so that they can better informed their teachers of the procedures and expectations. During my quest to teach in the public school system .I'm required to as many of you know ,take the GACE exam ,obtain an Associate Degree, take the Exceptional Child class , and complete NTI .... Wow that's a plate full..... Well I'm working on these things step by step ... Well I'm here now... in the words of the world famous P.Diddy " Can't Stop Won't Stop "
