It's been a hot minute since I've written anything.... over a year. Between being a mom, full time student, and a substitute teacher during a pandemic, writing hasn't been a priority. More than once, I've felt like I was in survival mode with classes. I didn't expect early block to be so intense. I admit that I broke down and cried several times this semester with feeling overwhelmed. But, I endured until the end, and I got straight A's for the semester. I'm proud of myself that I didn't give up. I am enrolled in 2 summer class, and 4 fall classes and studying for standardized tests that I must pass before I can begin my student internship.
I will be close to 50 when I graduate. Am I too old to do this? Who starts a career at 50????? I guess I do. I don't know what's going to happen when I graduate. I do know that I am enjoying the course work, and I'm enjoying being able to put what I have learned into practice as a substitute.
This school year... wow... it's been a learning experience on so many levels.
I'm taking a tech class this summer that I'm excited about. I feel that technology will play a larger role in education. So I'm excited to learn some more tech tools that I could use as a future teacher.
So, why am I here on this little ole blog of mine after a year long hiatus? Because I feel a tugging, a longing, a desire to use my voice. I'm not sure how or in what way, or what will come of it. But I have a yearning deep in my being that just won't stop. I'm too busy. I don't have time to write or manage social media. Some days my head feels barely above water as it is... and yet that longing is there... and it's getting louder and bolder... so here I am. I'm not sure where it will take me, but I feel the tugging and the importance to listen...
