Sometimes I think I might be going out of my mind. I have always been interested in pursuing an administrative credential. I don’t know why. When I first started teaching 25 years ago, becoming an administrator was never on my radar. However, I have been thinking that obtaining this credential would be a good move for me as I consider the future.
This particular program is given through the San Diego County Office of Education. I went to an informational meeting this afternoon. The program sounds interesting and aligns with my learning style. If I am accepted (I haven’t even applied yet.), I would belong to a cohort that would meet over a 15 month period. We would have class at least once a month all day Saturday. Inquiry-based learning is encouraged. Then, there are on-line classes. This works for me since I work full-time. I am seriously considering it. My husband, Kevin and I discussed the financial part of it. He told me I could do it if I didn’t buy anymore shoes and purses! Ha! I am not sure I can do that.
Anyway, I have got some things to consider. I have been weighing the pros and cons. If I decide to move forward, I have to get everything turned in by September 15th. I have some time to think about it, but not much. I think I am crazy for wanting to take on this work. However, I feel this will help me to be a better teacher. I am excited to start a new adventure.
