I saw this print on pinterest a while back and it's basically what sealed the deal for me to do something I've been thinking about for a while. even before I graduated college I knew I wanted to continue my eduction..but where? online or traditional campus? how would I pay for it? could I do it while being a new teacher and new wife? a lot of negative lots flooded my mind about starting grad school. when I saw this print I realized that if I didn't make a decision and commit I would never succeed. literally within ten minutes of seeing it on pinterest (and making it my desktop background, duh!) I had my schools narrowed down to three choices and I had started applications to all of them.
I ultimately decided it would be better for me to get my degree online, but I wanted to make sure it was a reputable online university. I chose to go with liberty university for two reasons..1) it's a well-known program among educators, and 2) it is a christian university. even though I don't teach private school and jesus is the last thing I'm allowed to talk about, I'm excited to see a different approach to teaching. I've always known that even though I'm not allowed to talk to my kids about jesus (but oh how I would love that!!) I can certainly love them like He loves them. I know that god doesn't have to be in my curriculum to be in my classroom. I think this will be unique and wonderful opportunity for me to further my education in something that I am completely passionate about. so starting today my nights and weekends for the next year will be filled with textbooks, articles, and discussion boards ;)
what do you need to decide on, commit to, and succeed at?
