I have been in touch with the MSDE regarding a modification in policy to include teachers who cannot teach full time in a classroom. I want to keep my certification so I can continue to teach part-time in a Learning Center. The man I spoke to says he'll try to negotiate something, but he hasn't called back. I REALLY feel that the inclusion law should be applied to this type of situation so that I can remain competitive in the field of Learning Centers. They try to say that we "tutor" and not "teach," but I know they are splitting hairs here. My certificate comes up for renewal again in '05 and they are trying to NOT renew it. I use my knowledge and skills in a Learning Center and I can't teach full time in a classroom. How do I get HEARD?
