Well, I decided to start acting on some ideas.
The first one was Google Educator Certification. This one is timely because I'll be searching for and interviewing for a new position this spring for the next school year.
I've looked at the training materials. I've studied. I've talked with teacher friends. But I've never moved beyond that. In fact, I spent $10 to register for the exam and then never took it. Yep, wasted money.
Well, I registered again. Then I took the test. After a three-day wait, there was an email. I passed!!!
Then, I explored the Level 2 Certification. I decided to go for it. I spent the money and immediately registered knowing I only had 8 days to take the test.
I texted my friend @wwolfe105 and she sent me a checklist from a friend that might be covered. I also spend a couple hours with the Google training.
Then I took the test.
Then I waited.
Then I couldn't wait any longer. I logged into the certification site and it listed my exam as passed!!! A couple days later, I got the official email.
I'm so excited!!! I'm a Google Level 2 Certified Educator. I'm glad that I finally took the plunge and just did it.
Now, on to Google Certified Trainer certification...
Or my next idea from the notebook...
