Yep. After my graduation ceremony tonight you all have to address me as Master Molly. It's mandatory.
And you have to bring me gifts every time you see me.
In fact, could you all clean my house and cook my meals out of respect for me?
Hahahaha. Seriously, I'm excited to be done with my program. For those of you who don't know what I've been studying, I'm getting a Masters in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). This means that I'll be able to teach English to adults for community-based ESL (English as a Second Language) programs, community college ESL classes, private language schools, and EFL (English as a Foreign Language) in other countries.
The only thing I can't teach is Adult School, which is run through school districts and requires an Adult Ed credential, which I just found out only consists of a couple requirements. So I'll probably go get that, too.
It's not a CA teaching credential, so I can't necessarily teach K-12 (which is ok since I'd rather teach adults). And, yes, I can teach students even if I don't know their first language (L1). In fact, most ESL classes are made up of students from many different L1s.
I think that covers it. So don't be surprised if Christian and I move to another country the first chance we get. Granted, that won't be for a while since he still has at least 3 semesters of school left, but I'm just warning you all in advance...
