You know that scene in "Princess Bride," where Inigo says, "I give you my word as a Spaniard," and Westley says, "No good. I've known too many Spaniards."
I feel that way about certified teachers. Will I send my child to that school and trust them because their teachers are certified? Most teachers are awesome and know their stuff, but, well, "I've known too many Education majors." (Ha ha).
I need to meet them. (And I'm grateful that M is at a place with really good teachers right now.)
