Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Increasingly Nervous

So I am becoming increasingly nervous as the weeks for my CSET results narrow.  If I didn’t pass, I’ll have to defer my TFA offer for a year.  I keep reading people’s blogs and most pass, but as I stated earlier, I hadn’t taken a math class in 6 years, and I’m just nervous.  I find out June 7th, one week before I am supposed to drive out to LA, if I passed.

Everyone keeps saying I will pass, but that is mostly because they have never seen me fail.  I have a mortgage to pay for on a house I am trying to sell, I’m working a contract position that will end in 3 weeks because I had intended to be at induction by June 21st.  If I get deferred, I am financially upside down in a horrible job market.  If anyone has any advice, I’m all ears.  In the meantime, I’m just going to keep praying and hoping for the best.
