Moore County does this cool thing where they team up with the local community college and UNCP to offer a Masters in K-12 Reading at SCC for their teachers. I had heard about it, but never got interested. This past year I researched going to UNCG for a Masters in Spanish or ESL, but knew that I wouldn't be able to afford the $1500 per class or handle the hour long drive each way. So when my colleague mentioned the reading cohort the other day I started asking questions. Classes are less than 30 minutes from here (less than 45 from home) and are only around $500 each! Everything is pre-planned and I can be finished sooner than if I went to UNCG. So it seems that I may be starting grad school this summer. I have started my UNCP application (again...8 years later) and researched everything that needs to be done before I can be accepted and enrolled. I may be crazy, but I think I'm going to do it.
I am married to my firefighting, truck-driving, Gospel preaching sweetheart, Ronnie. I am a full time mother to my three wonderful boys, Ethan, Elijah and Ezra, and my beautiful girl, Melia. I am saved by the blood of Jesus. I used to work as a high school Spanish teacher. I enjoy spending time with my guys, baking, taking pictures and blogging.
