With all due respect, and as a fellow teacher with all the impressive certificates and degrees, a degree a teacher does not make. And, having a master's degree in curriculum and instruction doesn't hold water for me. Most of my instructors in college had specialty degrees in education such as yours. None of what they taught has any practical use in the classroom. Curriculum and instruction is merely a rung in the ladder of marxist-based education. Sorry...I mean no disrespect, but what you claim as proof of your expertise is no more than what is common and usual in the public school arena.
