pomp & circumstance

December 6, 2004

i did it! i graduated from the kaplan teacher-training program. even though my vocal cords are covered in mucus and other inflammatory substances, i was able to slog my way through 15 minutes of physics to prove my worth one last time. i was chastised for only using the word kaplan once during those 15 minutes, but i passed anyway. yay!

now to actually find a class to teach! there are almost no slots left for mcat teachers for the next few months, but i may end up teaching the DAT instead! yep, that would be the dental version of the mcat. the tests are very similar, although the dentist-hopefuls have to do a ‘spatial reasoning’ type section that i know i would be unable to teach. fortunately, they also do bio, chem, verbal, and quantitative reasoning, so there would be enough that i qualify for. well, we’ll see if the important people at kaplan get back to me.

so now all that remains in my life is the boards. i like it much better when i have only one thing to focus on, but i can’t say that i’m terribly excited about studying. however, since i can’t talk, like, at all, it seems like the perfect time to isolate myself and actually get down to business.
