I am a 55 year old chemical engineer and I am on a one-year journey to become a Chemistry teacher in a local rural high school, if they’ll have me. I obtained my substitute teaching certification earlier this year. I decided to go the ‘alternative teacher certification’ route to save time and money.
I live in Osceola, Missouri (population 947) with my husband, horses, dog and cat. The grocery store is 45 minutes away and I share that road with farmers on tractors and Amish in carriages.
