TESOL Certification!

Yesterday I completed my TESOL English teaching certification course. I am now a certified ESL teacher! This will be a great resume boost so now I can apply for jobs. Before, I could say, "Hi, I'm an American with no degree or certification but I speak English and have done some tutoring!" Now, I can say "Hi, I'm a certified English teacher with tutoring experience!" Don't worry, my resume and cover letter will include no exclamation marks or the word 'hi' ... I'm not an idiot :P

Reality still isn't smacking me in the face yet. It's tapping, though. Knock, knock, Kristin. You have marketable human capital now. You have to go market yourself. You're planning to move in less than two months. Tick, tock.....
