What Whe Wore: black, pin-tucked, short-sleeve shirt with some kind of collar (I’m going to have to look it up); olive green, wide-leg capris; black, strappy sandals.
Well, someone asked a while ago, so I thought I’d share my plans with regards to my career/school/etc.
I’ve decided that in the long-run I definitely want to be in-charge in a school setting. I have specific ideas about what makes a school work, and I’d love a chance to share them with others or use them myself. This is, however, a long-term goal. Short-term, I think that being a regular classroom teacher would be better for a girl with a family. In a dream world, I’d get my Master’s Degree at the University of New Orleans in Urban Studies. The degree as listed is very flexible, and I’d love to focus on urban schools, specifically what works with regards to discipline, leadership, and whether certain types of Charter schools are more successful in the urban enviroment. I have no idea whether or they’d actually let me do this–right now it’s just a pipe dream.
Pipe dream or no, it’s my dream, but one that I’d like to devote myself to completely. Right now, I’m not quite ready to do that, so I’m sticking it on the shelf for the time being.
In it’s place, I’m inserting a more frivilous interest. I’m taking a drawing class. Me. Drawing.
I haven’t done it since high school, so this will be interesting. I’m going to have to enroll at the local community college, and quite frankly, the entrace requirement have got me giggling a bit. Since I have not taken an English or Math class in the last three years, I will be required to take an aptitude test in English, Reading, and Math. I’ve taught Reading, Math, and English in the last three years, so I’m not really worried about it–just entertained, really.
I’m also hatching another plot to make a little pocket change and keep teaching is a sense. . .but I’ll save that for my next blog.
