  1. I know that is true for being a teacher. In Pa, so long as you have a BA or BS in a related field, you can teach it. I'm not sure that's true though for being a school counselor. The main reason I'm asking is due to having a quasi job interview this coming Thursday at a private school. I'm not applying directly to be a school counselor but I would like to say that, should you hire me, I can also offer this skill at no extra cost.
  2. Hey All! Not all too long ago, I posted on this board looking for some help to better understand LDS. Everyone seemed to be very friendly so figured I'd come seek you all out for some different help. In a few weeks, if all goes well, I'll have completed my master's program in Psychology and I'm trying to figure out, in the state of Pa, if that would allow me to be a guidance counselor in a private school? I know that public schools requires certification but I can't figure out if that is the same for a private school. I've searched all over the state's website and I cannot find any mention of private schools. I also waited on hold for over 30 mins with the state trying to find out the answer only to be disconnected. Due to all of that, I've come to you in search of some information.

    David Prisco From Philadelphia, Pa Has A Few Q's

    Hello All, Since you were so friendly last week, I thought I should update you all and let you know I started reading the Book of Mormon on my way into work today. Don't worry, I take the train so I wasn't reading and driving! Ha. Again, thank you all for taking the time to answer and respond to my post; I do greatly appreciate it.

    Big thanks to everyone that responded and I appreciate all the links! I'm going to take the time to read through everything and, after I do, I'll be back with some more questions! Again, do appreciate everyone here for being so welcoming

    David Prisco From Philadelphia, Pa Has A Few Q's

    Thanks for the warm welcome! To start things off, would you all mind explaining the accurate story between Joseph Smith and the plates that he found and translated? For me, that was one of the more confusing parts to the episode and I feel that South Park purposefully left out larger chunks of the story to add to the humor. From my understand, he found one set of plates and he was able to translate them with the help of the lord. I find that this draws a lot of similarities with Moses finding the commandments. But where things get a bit mucky for me is the second set of plates that he finds and translates.
  6. Hey everyone, Encase you missed my introduction, my name is David Prisco and I'm a life insurance agent in Philadelphia, Pa. I found this board after a friend of mine were out one night talking about the old South Park episode that poked fun at Scientology and the one about LDS. We were trying to figure out what was true and what was created for comic appeal. I felt it best to ask you all rather than assume what I find on a google search to be accurate or what I watch in a TV show to be true. A little bit of my background, I was born and raised Catholic and went to a Catholic H.S. as well as University. Even with that up bringing, I never studied the spirituality of Catholicism or any other religion. So I'm hoping that I'm posting the the correct board to gain some insight on LDS and clear up any misconceptions that South Park/the media have thrown out there. Sorry for not having a more general question and this is more of open ended start to a thread. Hopefully it will gain some positive traction!

    My office is right by there! I was wondering what they were building? Where is the best place for me to post general questions about LDS on this board? I guess I should say that I'm a Catholic person that is trying to gain knowledge about LDS.

    Thanks for welcoming me here! I hope it goes better than the insurance form. That introduction went so sideways that I gave up on posting with that board; I didn't get the vibe that it was a positive community.
  9. Hello Everyone! My name is David Prisco and I came to this board hoping to find out some information about LDS. A friend of mine and I were out talking the other day about what is true and what is a myth about LDS and googling to find the answer didn't really help. So, when I found this board, I thought, what a better place to start! So, anyways, long story short, wanted to introduce myself as I'll be posting on this board to ask some questions and find out more about LDS. Thanks you very much for having me!
