Back In The Saddle

Oh my,  Sorry for taking off some time.  I did not realize what or where I have been lately.

Trying to get back into the swing of things has been a little trying.

As always I am trying to be the best mom possible, best teacher possible and as of yesterday I have added best student possible.

Yes, you read that right I am back in school.

I have gone back to Grad school for School Building Leadership and at some point I need to decide if I will go for the FULL Masters or just the certificate program.  We shall see.  I am excited.

I NEVER wanted to go into education.  I wanted Business (which I did and hated).  My friends would say teaching and I would say, "No way!"  But here I am 22 years later and I am exactly where I should have been all along.  However, my business background is what gives me the motivation to do more than just teach.  Education is such a mess.  We are teaching our children to the test, making unrealistic goals/expectations for some in special education instead of concentrating on what they really need and the people who have never been in a classroom make the rules or bash us for our jobs.  Sorry for that.  I just want to make a difference and this program will open up that arena for me.

I have been cooking some yummies and will be posting those recipes as they came out really good.  It is so cold here today I am in a soup making mood.  Let's see what I come up with.

Ta-ta for now,

  1. Welcome back my friend! Isn't it funny that life takes over ~ I imagine the break was needed and busy. Congrats on going back to school and following your passion ~ there seems to be a lot of that going around as of late. I have been nesting this week-end too ~ can't wait to see what you have been cooking!
