(Arizona Educators Proficiency Exam)
Yes, I had already passed the Idaho exam (The Praxis) two years ago, but Arizona needed me to take this one as well. Needless to say, I was a little nervous! I was even MORE nervous when I was the first one to finish with 3 hours to spare. But, I went with my "gut instinct" and just turned it in. It was all about using the knowledge and experiences I've used since graduating, student teaching, and teaching this past year.
Luckily, the prize was won.
Derek was so cute in supporting me with this crazy endeavor. He takes multiple tests every week, and when it was my turn, he was so sweet, supportive, and helpful. He's the best!
