It's been a while since I posted on this board, partially since I graduated and I'm sort of in student limbo while waiting to hear from grad schools! I recently decided to apply to a Master's in the Art of Teaching program that I'm in love with, and I'm almost positive I'll get in. One of the best parts is that my fiance and I would be able to get married next year instead of 2014 if I did it!
My biggest concern, however, is how I'll support myself while student teaching, since that's a full-time unpaid job. From June to December of this year I'd just be in classes, and my student teaching would begin in January of 2013. I could save up money until then, but I'm still unemployed and really struggling to find work. I actually have a lot of money saved up, but it's all set aside for the wedding and I don't want to touch it.
So, how did those of you who have student taught do it? How are you doing it, if you're doing it now? TIA!
