Now for a 360 into a better direction.

It's got to be a fast post today since a certain someone tends to monopolize the computer all weekend.

And I have to do my Saturday morning cleaning.


On Wednesday (or maybe it was Thursday...) Dr. Mad Scientist checked the status of his chemistry certification online to find that it read:



My husband is now officially a pegasus!


Pegasuses are what I call people certified in both biology and chemistry. They're rare, but not as rare as unicorns.


Unicorns are people certified to teach biology, chemistry AND physics. Very rare and highly valuable.

Because plain old biology teachers are sadly, a dime a dozen.


Of course add a Special Ed cert to any of these certificates and you become like a Level 10 fire breathing dragon...


Now...I wonder how long it will take before he can get HR to call him back about signing a contract--ha ha!

Congrats! I am so glad they sorted that out! Hopefully he can sign the contract soon.

BTW, your kids help clean? Getting Pi to help clean is like pulling teeth. I'm going to have to show her this post!

Yay for the Pegasus! Sadly, I am one of those dime-a-dozen bio-certified only teachers. (That's the same phrase my department chair uses.) I voluntarily teach the ESE kids with a coteacher, but I refuse to get the ESE certification because that would doom me to a career teaching ONLY these kids, with NO coteacher. So, yes, having that certification does make you extremely rare (what was that? fire-breathing dragon something something?), but it also sets you down a certain career path, at least in my district. I prefer having my options.

If they're smart, they'll snap him up.

Since my oldest daughter is unemployed, she is in charge of the housecleaning each week. In a way, I'm not looking forward to her getting a job anytime soon. I like not having to spend most of Saturday cleaning the house. But, she has a job interview on Tuesday and I suppose I should think good thoughts for her.
