Cost of Working (Provided I Find a Full-Time Job)

I just finished the second-to-last step of my certification process, and was privy to some new information about my college that makes everything about the last year of struggling to get this done make more sense. 

I also forked over more money.  So here’s an exercise in accounting.  For ease, everything has been rounded to the nearest dollar.

State fee for fingerprinting: $92

Site fee for fingerprinting: $30

Liberal Arts and Sciences Test: $79

Assessment of Teaching Skills - Written: $79

Multi-Subject CST: $79

Child Abuse workshop: $40

Violence Prevention workshop: $40

Not including school itself. 

Well…I really hope this turns out to be worth it.
