Thank you so much for all you've helped me...I had to pass three exams and I passed them the first time, which shows that CSUB has an excellent teacher program. Many teachers in this area fail the exams and I was scared to even take them because I met a teacher that had taken them 6 times. I thought there was no way I would pass because they even have classes to prepare for those exams. I had a solid pedagogy foundation, which helped me pass.
