School girl

Did I tell you I'm in school?


I took the plunge and signed up for a couple online classes at the community college this semester.  It has been 11 years since I've taken a college class.  It's hard.

Let me clarify: It's not that the actual school work is very difficult, it's the balancing of the reading (and there's lots of it!), projects, and online class participation with working a full time job that requires me to travel, doing home renovations, working out, spending time with Todd and Rigby, cleaning...and the list goes on.  

But I've been wanting to make a career change from PR gal to high school teacher for, well, several of the last 11 years.  I love the industry I'm in and have gotten to do a lot of really neat things through my jobs, but PR's just not my final calling.

Not only do I think I'd make a good teacher, but with Todd's final job location not secured yet, teaching will give me the ability to also have a career in whatever town he gets moved to.  

Maybe Todd will carry my school books...


  1. I think that you'd be a wonderful high school teacher.

    I can't imagine that it would be really difficult to balance that much. So mu so that I don't know how you can possibly get it all done! lol. After Bunny was born I went to grad school for English and I remember feeling like it was impossible. I was totally exhausted and keeping up with the reading was pure hell.

  2. When I took a couple online classes at the community college to transfer to the university for my teaching degree, it was killer. I could NEVER find the time to do the reading, so would have all this catch up work to do before a test. I'd love to go back to school to finish my English Education degree, it's just not feasible right now. I am gone all day running kids to and from school, then I have 10 kids in my house all day and night. Plus kids' extra curricular activities. I barely see my kids besides coming and going as it is! I'd never see them OR Tony if I took classes. :)
