Blast Day is Like Christmas!

Every month, TFA Metro Atlanta sends corps members an email “blast”, or an email with lots of info and action items. Seriously, these emails are like Christmas morning. I love getting these task-oriented emails because they have specific actions to complete. While some may find these tasks mundane or repetitive, I really enjoy them because each action item is one step closer to the classroom.

This month’s blast focused on preparing for March CM Weekend. In two weeks, I will join other CMs in Atlanta for interviews and testing. Today I completed my application for DeKalb County Schools. I’m looking forward to finding out our other county as well as the charter schools we will be interviewing with.

With interviews comes testing. I’m also busy studying for the GACE, Georgia’s teacher certification exams. I have to take two exams for Elementary certification. My exam will be on Saturday the 26th. Two¬† weeks from tomorrow! ACK!

After testing, we will have a welcome party. So excited to meet other CMs in two short weeks!
