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:)
