Congratulations on achieving Wiki Apprentice Level 2. I noticed your request for the level 1 cert, but in reviewing your work in your sandbox, you have demonstrated achievement of level 2.
By the way, I am an educator in New Jersey also, lots of volunteer work with youth in educational settings, as well as part-time lecturer at Rutgers at the School of Education (Intro stats).
Fun to meet someone located nearby within this global community.
Your WikiNeighbor, Alison
