A sure way of making sure you do not something again is to let the certificate expire.
My Arizona license expired years ago. In the past it was easy to renew because I had enough years in the classroom there.
Arizona now requires certain, politically correct, classes in order to be certified. These are only taught at Arizona colleges and are explicit about how to not speak another language to a child who speaks that language. Arizona is an English only state.
This bogus class can be taken on line. You pay for the class and then fill in sheets going over the materials, sending answers electronically to the college. This type of college education is bogus. There is no interchange. You might as well take a test with the book in your lap- no real learning, just regurgitation of what is there. This is not education.
Go into the Marines and learn a skill. If you are going to college- have interchange and discussion- broaden your mind!
I don't play political games well.
This one is far more bogus than any I have encountered.
You get teachers (who make some of the lowest wages in state hierarchy) to take a class (so that you can assure the colleges that there will be at least SOME paying students this year) on a topic that is only there for political correctness.
And so...my teaching days in Arizona are over.
The thought had passed my mind that I could return to a classroom while helping my mom out in future years. No longer a thought.
BTW- I have always been an immersion teacher.
