A student once more
I knew early on that I wanted to be a teacher, I love working with kids and seeing the potential each and every one has. I also knew that it had to involve art somehow, because that was something that I was passionate about as well. Becoming an art teacher was a perfect fit....plus I get my summers off! I was blessed enough to get to teach for two years before having babies. Unfortunately, my teaching licence needs to be renewed....uh, next month....with six credit hours under my belt. Nothing like living on the edge. So I am currently taking a few graduate classes to receive credit and I might work towards getting my masters (even though deep down I feel that if you're a good teacher, you're a good teacher, no matter what degree you hold) It's been a delicate balancing act (I'm not quite sure how full time mothers try to be full time students, you are amazing) trying to finish papers and questions, taking care of my children and house and making art......all in one day. I'm actually enjoying the reading material and topics covered, it makes me long to get back into the classroom someday. It will be a hard transition to make, but one I am looking forward to when God tells me it's time and presents me with an opportunity! It may be part time, it may be full time or it may be in a few years, but I can only trust that God has my future as an educator in His hands. I am excited for this new season of life to be approaching. It does make me sad however, to watch my two babies grow up and start school of their own. Where on earth did the time go! So I am making the most of every minute (really! I have no minutes to spare!) with my children and husband.
Now it's off to write a paper.....geesh, it's been a long time since I written a paper (do blog posts count as papers?)
