Hi. Cal Roy here. My hard drive burned out so I had to get a new one. My password for this page was on that drive and I couldn't remember it. For some reason this website wouldn't let me reset my password using Facebook to enter so I just created a new name. Thus Cal Roy Returns. Anyway, I have been writing about the Teacher Ready program that lets me get an American teaching credential online. I finished all my classes, was observed by my boss and so all I needed was to take, and pass, 3 state exams. Unfortunately, they can only be taken from within the US unless I am in the military, which I am not. I took all three exams. The general knowledge exam is four parts. I passed one part and don't know about the other three. I didn't pass the ESOL exam because I didn't have a study book. Stupid me. And I did pass the professional knowledge exam. Thus. I passed two parts, failed one and don't know about 3 others. What the program did give me was my third waiver, though I am reading here that the waivers have once again become fairly easy to get. I presume that gives me another 2 years. I will probably not go back to the US until next year (too expensive for this poorly paid teacher) and then I may just retire. I turn 62 in December and that lets me get Social Security.
