I'm going back to school...

Yes, you've read this title right, i'm starting my diploma in Adult Education this winter! It'll cost me about 5,000.00 in total ( it'll be income tax deductible) and that includes staying in a hotel, and gas. How am I feeling? Nervous, exctied and scared all at the same time! I decided to do the diploma first, then my Masters! Changes are coming once again, and I'm saying bring it on!

FYI, after Canada and the US for readers, the next country is: South Africa! Please if you read my blog in South Africa, please let me know who you are!

I think your idea to return to school is fantastic! It also sounds like doing this certificate will be a good warmup for your Master's!

What jobs are you looking at getting after completing the education?

it is always good to upgrade one's skill sets.

Jason, I'm looking towards moving towards HR or teaching adults in some aspect, or perhaps a combination of both. It's a win/win for me.

Sam - I started off teaching in Adult Education and LOVED it - but unfortunately it's categorized as Part-time/occasional here, so after 7 years I took a job in special ed and got a permanent job with much needed benefits.
You go girl!!

Oh yeah, addressed your questions regarding including kids with special needs in mainstream classes in my post today. Please let me know if you have any more questions - I love talking about my work:)perhaps a little bit too much lol!

Congratulations on making this choice, I,m sure you will do really well.
Good for you for going back to school! I graduated with my BS is Technical Education and Industry Training this summer. Masters is not in the plans yet... too expensive. :)

Much Success!!

Hi Sam - Im Lynda, born in England and brought up in South Africa. Im a single mom too (divorced with 2 kids 10 & 13) and I discovered your blog about a week ago. I have gone right back to day 1 and read every post - I just love it as I feel like I can really relate to you and your life! Have picked up some great tips from you and my plan to get out of debt started last week. Thanks for your inspiration.
