Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance! I Passed the Exam!!


I guess I got something to dance about which is a late Christmas present and a New Year's surprise. I passed the Texas State Board for Educator Certification Exam for Generalist 4-8! Yippee!! Thank you to those of you who sent up a prayer for me! God bless ya real good!

Now if I can just find a job so I can complete my intern and apply for official certification. I take Pedagogy this Spring, starting next weekend. All Saturday classes!! Ugh!! Oh well, for now, it's back to the substitute teacher's grind in the morning. I'll be a PE teacher Mon-Tue, the first days back after Christmas Break. Did I mention, I'm willing to relocate???

Jen was practicing on the drums and I was getting a New Year's workout! Don't laugh too hard, now.

Hey ladies,

I thought ya'll would get a kick out of the "work-out" video!! It even makes me laugh when I look at it again. Thank God, the Lord didn't create me to be inhibited! Ha! Those of you who have met me up close and personal, know I love to have a good time!!!! I suggest coming back and watching this whenever you need a lift or want to get a good chuckle!

Anywho, thanks for your well wishes for me passing the exam! I'll have to look into the schools in the DFW area. There's so many to choose from!! Take care!!!!

Mel said...

Congratulations Maryee!

I watched the video three times!With those dance moves you could come and join my department:-)

Anonymous said...

First I would like to say congratulations!

Next I would like to say initially I was watching you dance with out the music and got quite a laugh. Then I turned up the volume and realized you were dancing to a beat. That made better sense. Sometimes there's nothing like a dance to let some steam off! You go gurl.

Marvelous, lol. Congratulations. You looked so cute doing your happy dance. Again, congrats.

KDL said...

Work it girl! Congrats on passing your exam. You make me wanna get up dance with 'cha :-) Best wishes in your career and I am so thrilled that you'll be officially joining the best profession of all.

Now, if you're serious about relocating...ever thought about Atlanta? :-), I was a recruiter in my former life and would be more than happy to hook you up.

Best Wishes!

Take Care.

Chosen Vessel said...

((((((((((((Laughs))))))))) Ok, I can't believe I did not watch the video. I read the post and failed to watch the video. "Do yo thang girl!"

Valenciajaz said...

Congrats on passing your Xam! I used to work in Grand Prairie ISD for 13 years. If you need a letter of recommendation hit me up. I also now a few principals in that district too.

CloudNine said...

I had to hold my stomach....you are off the hook. You better work it! ( I am still laughing!!)

CloudNine said...

The only thing that would have been better is to see what the legs were doing...it seems like the "hammer" would have been appropriate! If you did the hammer...I may not be able to take it!

Maryee said...

Hey ladies,

Thanks for the congrats on my passing the exam and to those of you who are willing to give me tips/referrals in places where you work/worked. KDL, my brother just relocated to ATL, so that may be an option. We'll see. I really appreciate that.

I've been running around all week, checking in on the comments, laughing and happy I decided to post my "work out" dance. Cloudnice, if you saw the "whole" body recording, which I do have, you would be crying. It was funny and yes, there was some "Hammer" movements and more. I decided to give ya'll the "tamer" version! Oh yeah, Sunsail, I was flinging my hair on purpose, cause I remember a day when I was flinging OPH acting like it was all mine, although it was IBM hair, (I Bought Mine) So to know that when I do my old cheerleading dance moves and it's MY hair brushing against my face, I'm just tickled pink! *Jen said thanks!* Mel, I need to check back to see what department you work in. I know it's London, so I'm curious. (LOL)

Laugh and have fun! More videos to come!! Check back!

Cee said...

locizm said...

CloudNine said...

I knew you were doing the hammer!!...watch out na'

Detra said...

Look atcha doing your dang on thang! Congrats my sistah! Sending wishes you will land that dream job!

Jeri said...

You look WAY too cute flinging those locs and dancin'. Girl, you just need to end it with a church shout (to me the happiest dance of all). Anyway, congrats on passing your test. Go ahead and post that on YouTube and share your joy with the world.

Jeannie said...

Congratulations on passing your exam! That is great! Your video put a smile on my face (it actually had me rollin')! I think I saw the "cabbage patch" in there for a split second! Do your thing!
p.s. Your locks are lovely!

Hey ladies,

I'm off from working today because we're iced in. So I'm doin' a lil' bloggin' and catching up. Thanks for the exam congrats! Thanks also for your kind compliments and jammin' with me in my New Year Workout Video! I must admit, when I need a pick-me-up, I head to the video of me dancing or the one with little Tiana and me. They both put a smile on my face and have me laughing. Jen really wants to do a "re-take" of the dance/drumming cause she feels she's improved since this recording. We'll see. I plan on retightening my hair and so perhaps...perhaps.

CONGRATS! This is fun and funny! It reminds me of the praise dance I did on campus when I found out I had a B in my Finacial Accounting course. That class was so fast past with so much information, it is by God's grace that I was so successful.

My many of my classmates cheered me on, some perhaps thought I was "different" and others I am sure wished they could be that free in the praise of GOD!

As a result, I see more of my classmates in the co-hort recognizing the role GOD is playing in their lives.

Thank you for sharing this with us!
