I am working towards becoming a credentialed educator in California--Secondary English. Hopefully, all the paperwork will be processed in a timely fashion at my school and I will begin taking credential courses this spring! Navigating this path has been interesting considering the budget cuts to the CSU system. Right now, I am an English tutor for Student Support Services at the university I attend, and I work nights at a liquor store. Also, I am finishing some courses on multi-genre/multi-media writing; I really like the possibilities this offers and it has drastically altered my approaches in tutoring sessions. I am glad to see a group dedicated to this here at edutopia. Further, the Core Concepts outlined here seem to be in line with my educational outlook, so that's exciting!
