Attest-WHAT?! Simplifying the Attestation Process

You successfully interviewed and have been hired to teach in an international school, CONGRATULATIONS! But, before you finish dishing out high fives and start planning your going away party, your school sends you a list of required documents. This seems easy enough: diplomas, transcripts, teaching license, passport and... attestation?! What is that?!You immediately begin to panic at this unfamiliar and threatening word.
