My exam

I did not write a blog for a long time. Forgive me, please. But I had a very important reason to be offline. I was preparing for a very important exam. Now I will try to explain this in more detail.
Teachers in Belarus must take certification exams. If a young teacher came to school, he has no experience. His first exam he takes two years later. Thereafter, a teacher called "the teacher of the second category." It is very easy exam. After 3 years, the teacher passes the second test, this test is more complicated. The teacher shows all the things he learned during this time. I handed these two exams at school. After this examination the teacher raises his category with the second to the first.
It takes another three years. If the teacher wants to, he can pass the third exam. But there is a distinctive moments. The first two exams teacher gave in the home school. In order to pass the third exam, the teacher must come to Minsk. The teacher writes a report on its activities, takes two tests. Also, the teacher should think of one hour lesson on the topic, which the examiners will choose for him.
I went to Minsk June 16 and 17. I wrote a report on my educational blog and get good results in tests. The next day I wrote a lesson plan on the subject, which the examiners made for me.
I was very scared. It seemed to me that I would be ashamed of a bad outcome in the exam. Really, I was very scared. Therefore, all of June I visited the library in Gomel and read, read, read ... I saw a dream in which I was sitting in the library and read)))
Now I'm happy I passed the exam!! I was the second success in my group and gained a very high score.
So, now I am called "the teacher of the highest category." And I'll try to write more in the blog. )) Now I have enough time, I'm think.
This is the building of the Academy, where I passed the exams.
