It was important for me to obtain my early childhood regular education teaching license. I loved the job I had, co-teaching integrated kindergarten. However, I wanted to ensure that if something were ever to happen to my position, I could continue to be a classroom teacher at that grade level. The add-on program made this very easy for me as I was already doing the work I needed for the license. I’m so happy I found the add-on program!!
