Another shake down took place through CCRR and the person who told me I could no longer teach without my AA was demoted herself. Although she had a bachelors degree, it wasn’t in early childhood education. I’ll be honest…that made me smile a little as she wasn’t very nice to me when she told me I was going to be phased out. Lately I’ve been getting an itch to teach a little more but to do that, I think I would need to get my bachelors in early childhood education. Just for curiosity I looked into seeing where I could do it at. Amazingly I can do it online. For years and years I’ve always used the excuse that I couldn’t go back to college as it was just too far to drive. I wish the program would have been available 10 or 20 years ago. Now I no longer have the excuse…that is if I truly want to go back…but do I?? Right now, I lean towards no. I like what I’m doing. I am starting to teach a few quilting classes to guilds and that is fulfilling a little of that itch to teach more…but every so often I hear that little voice to go back to college. At this point, I don’t think I’m going, but if something happens to Hubby or if I change my mind, I am comforted knowing that there are options out there that would help me advance in the education career field. Just knowing the college options are there gives me a little piece of mind. You can bet when I am teaching continuing education classes to childcare providers, I’m going to let them know that in the education field things are changing…there are online options now. For now, I am going to try to be content with the jobs I have…being the mom and wife, quilting, blogging, teaching and my free early learning printables website Making Learning Fun.
