I have decided to go back to school. It's a huge step for me but you all know from past blogs that I have been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life for a while now.
It hasn't been like a sense of urgency necessarily but I have had a strong feeling to get it done. The problem is, I don't want to go into the same thing as I did 12 years ago.! I really feel like I need something that would take care of my family if something happend to my husband. I hope it's not some kind of premonition but that is what it almost feels like.
Now, when I tell you what I have settled on you are going to think I am insane. In fact, if you had come to me a year ago and told me that this is what I would choose to go back to school for, I would have said," Get thee hense, Satan!"
I want to teach high school english and history! Yep. It's true. I know teachers don't make tons but.... I would be home with my kids when they are home. We would have the same holidays off, I would have good insurance, (at least better than I have now), Holidays off, summers off, and I could be home when I want to be, with them. I thought about a medical field but I don't want 10 to 12 hour shifts, people telling me to work nights or weekends or holidays or possibly, accidentally, killing someone (minor detail).
Plus, I want to teach kids that areold enough to try and really think! To delve into subjects and to have some really good discussions. I hated high school and if I can make it better for even a few kids, I would really feel good about that.
I am not in any hurry. I will take only a couple classes at a time while my three are in school. Then I will only have to find someone to watch my baby a couple times a week. I'll have to do my generals again since it has been so long but I don't mind. I would go to school for ever and be perfectly happy about it! I love school. My husband doesn't like that idea but I could do it!
I will probably start in the spring and I am very excited about it. I know there will be hard times and I am really afraid of going to all that work and then not liking it but I guess that is the risk you take with any job. Let me know what you think and if any of you out there do teach high school, I would love your imput and opinions.
