This year has been tough for me. I am a mother and a military spouse. Being a military spouse has taught me the meaning of patience and how to be independent because regardless of having a spouse, you are pretty much not going to see him as much as you want to. I have learned to endure and by God’s grace, I have learned that with prayer, asking for peace and patience from the beginning of the day is the key to a stress free day.
I never thought that I would be going back to school especially not for nine hours when I already have a masters but in order to do what i want to which is stay in Florida and teach, I had to return to school. I do not mind it but for once it would have been nice to just finish school and get the right job, in the right city but i guess we can not always get what we want. I am happy where I am. While taking my 9 hours, I have been substitute teaching and gaining the experience that I need. I have been making connections with teachers, looking at their lessons plans and learning what works best for each grade level. My goal is to become a teacher and eventually start teaching at a college level but again that is easier in Texas than it is in Florida. Eventually after teaching for a few years at a college level, I plan on becoming the dean of students or the dean of the college in whatever school i end up.
I know that you might be thinking that is pretty far fetched but in reality that is only the beginning of my career and God willing, I will get there someday. For now I would like to get a stable teaching position either in high school or college to gain the experience that I need and eventually even go back to school for my PHD. This is my life, my Journey and with God on my side, my future.
I have enjoyed this class and learning about all these amazing authors as well as my classmates. Thank you all.
