I finally took one of my Licenses tests last week. Sadly, I did not pass it. BUT you know what? It's okay! I am not going to put myself down because I know I can succeed... It may take some time, but it will happen. The main thing is to try not to get discouraged. I need to make sure I take the tests early enough, so I'm not stressing about time.
Unfortantualy, it is too the point now when I see my Professors, and they ask how I did on the tests. I feel sad, embarrassed, and I want to keep walking past them. I feel like it's on repeat to tell them I did not pass, but I will get it next time. I want to show them all that I can do it! They do support me, but deep down inside I feel like some of them are thinking I'm not cut out for this, you know the being a "TEACHER" thing. I want everyone to know that TEST-TAKING DOES NOT DEFINE WHO YOU ARE AS AN INDIVIDUAL!!! My future students will be taught not to get discouraged after taking a test that they tried their best on. I have/had struggles during life, but it is making me a stronger teacher that will support each student that crosses my path.
Struggling in life is a common thing. It just depends on how you handle it. Put a smile on your face every day, tell yourself you can do it, and DON'T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS!
