So, I bought my plane ticket. I leave on August 10th at noon. It's the first one-way ticket I think I've ever bought, and it was more expensive than I expected: about $350.00 . Actually, let us examine some of the costs of my summer:
$112 application fee for Florida Teacher Certification.
$5 for my official transcripts
$23 Fee for a Criminal Background check to send to the school.
$10 for the Apostille I had to request on my Diploma, to get permission to work in Mexico.
And soon I will pay $55 for fingerprinting that goes along with the certification.
Interestingly... I've paid more to get this all set up than I will make for a couple of months down there. Oh well. I am obviously not doing this for the money.
