One more entry for the National Board portfolio!
I have made several important discoveries during this process. Some of them, I will probably not share until after scores are released.
When you ask? NOVEMBER.
Oh, and in June, I will travel to Beaumont to take the three hour, six question assessment test.
Scores in November. In the same amount of time women can gestate and deliver a baby. I’m too tired to make the metaphorical stretch.
I’ve already decided that whenever the scores are released, I won’t have the courage to look first. I couldn’t even sit through five consecutive minutes of Silence of the Lambs.
Here’s one epiphany…if I can persevere and discipline myself to finish this massive portfolio, why am I not this focused when I’m finishing my own writing? (Don’t answer that—it’s a rhetorical question).
So–the pay off, for me, in addition to the possibility of adding NBCT behind my name after November of 2007, is that I may be able to add….published? And the sound you’ll hear, my friends, is the Alleluia chorus.
