Re: Failure to be successful...(my career vent)
In the event that the school has an emergency situation you can get a provisional certificate. This will almost always ONLY be in math areas. If you do get this sort of thing they will probably require you to get your teaching certificate within one year and then begin working on a continued education. The state of Kentucky also requires that you pass three tests to receive your full certification. Sounds like a lot, but its really not to terrible. You can knock out three tests in two Saturdays.
