Of course, this is way cool, but it also makes me worry. I don't know what the chances are of UOP letting me do my student teaching out here (45min-1hr away from campus). If I really want to do my student teaching out here, and perhaps get hired out here -- and I do -- I may have to finish my credential at Cal State Hayward or somewhere that is more flexible about student teaching placements.
I know I have some fellow teachers on my friends' list -- what do you guys think? I mean, I know first of all I need to ask the UOP placement people. But if they say 'no, sorry, all of our placements are in Stockton'... do I hope that my 5 credential units that I have so far will transfer over to another school? Because I'm just not driving out to Stockton or Modesto or Tracy or something every single day for student teaching -- that's 30-40 miles each day and I'm not going to put that many miles on my car (and spend that much money on gas) for a 'job' i'm not even getting paid for.
