Oh, Grad School.
I guess I did not do enough research about the requirements expected as me and a first year teacher joining TFA. We must continue our education, either with the certification or grad school program. We were able to choose between two schools, a public and private school, and before summer comes, we will decide on if we are going to obtain a masters or just a certificate. The difference in cost between the two is approximately 3,000 dollars.
I’m over it already.
I had a paper due this past Saturday, we also had Professional Development with TFA (PSAT) this past Saturday, and I still haven’t completed it. Quite frankly, I feel that my grad school classes are a bit of a joke. I have received perfect scores on each assignment with little effort, however, the assignments are still very time consuming.
I really wish I would have looked into this aspect of TFA before selecting my region. Future TFAers beware of the hidden gem known as Grad School!
