I wrote in a previous post that my wife and I are trying to obtain Connecticut certification. Today, we drove into Hartford--what a desolate city that has become in the twelve years I've been gone--in order to hand deliver our paperwork.
We entered an old wooden door into a tiny little room with a walk-up counter. Behind the desk, an older woman sat with a disgruntled look on her face. She wasn't pleasant. And then I read the sign on one of the walls. It advertised the process for discussing certification questions. The receptionist could not answer questions, she only accepted the paperwork. Additionally, any questions must be directed to one of the consultants. Applicants had to call between 12-4 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday. I wonder how much that consultant gets paid? Do you think it is more than a fourth year teacher?
