Those three letters have defined my life for some time now. I am studying again – not because a teacher and educator must always be aware of the evolution of education, but also because I anticipate returning to school in two years. I am intelligent, but few things make me feel as much self-doubt as standardized tests. It may seem funny, because I have trained myself to overcome deficiencies in many areas, but studying for this infernal exam has proven to be quite a challenge. I will be very happy when all of this is over and I can walk across the stage to claim my Master’s and Ph.D.
