    I worked every conference and planning period with an AP. I also
    assisted with testing and ESL, invaluable experience. I also did
    research for the principal on expanding the AP program...all legit
    hours. In fact, I put in more because I wanted a job at the
    HS.....and I got it! Work your tail off!!! BTW, I was taking 9 grad
    hours and teaching HS pap English and remediation courses at the
    time. It can be done and done well. You will have no social life and
    hopefully have a supportive spouse:)
