Upon finishing my initial teaching license in broadfield science, biology, and chemistry, I had a goal to obtain a physics concentration in order to broaden my jobs prospects both now and in the future.  I researched several pathways to add on a license and the Add-on program caught my eye because of its flexibility and ability to accommodate a working professional.  They assisted me in finding prerequisite courses that I could complete and the entire process was guided by the staff at the Excel Center.  The majority of the other surrounding University programs in the area required me to take prerequisites during daytime hours which was impossible for me to complete.  I am currently teaching in the area of my Add-on, thanks to the program, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to broaden their licensure area.
