MTTC Study guide for early childhood education grad k-8 and MTTC study guide for hearing Impairment.  Helping daughter study for her testing in a week or two.

Just curious why trig and calculus are a part of that test.

I can understand all of the medical terms and crap, just not those.  Seems too advanced even for 8th grade.

Duck the obvious answer is so they can jack up the price of an education now days. During the summer I like to turn it down a bit educationally I just finished Red my uncensored life in rock by Sammy Hagar. Written at about the eighth grade level but entertaining none the less.

No doubt Erie..... and actually there's a pretty funny story regarding the Cabo brand told in the book.

Sounds like a good read.   Right now I am reading life insurance policies and trying to figure out how to collect some money.  It is amazing to me how much information they want.  I have to find out how to get my mother in laws death certificate . .  .she died over 10 years ago.  The policy payments my husband had been paying say right on the address line:  mother's name (deceased)
                                                                                               husband's name
                                                                                               our address
 
I wonder why they don't know she is deceased???    :-\

A couple of options erie...

you need to contact the county clerk where she died or in some cases the state health department.

Lots of the state health department documents are available online and you can locate and order them fairly easy.  It can be a little harder dealing with the county clerks in some cases...

When you order the copy make sure you get a certified one (the embossed seal) for the life insurance company.

Sounds as if you may need the Cabo for that situation.  :) Good luck.

Not a romance novel! I stopped reading those when I was a teenager and decided that my personal life was more exciting! lol This book is more of a psychological drama.
