Retro-futurist Educator
I suppose it’s that time…

I told myself earlier this year that I would write more blogs, but once again things changed and the blog was prioritized out. I was turned down by both TeachNOLA and TFA. My only assumption is that they did not want to have to deprogram me to reprogram me, as I already have my M.Ed. I only lack teaching certification to be a classroom teacher. So, I never moved to New Orleans. I never taught Science, but I am convinced it was for the best. Classroom teaching was never my goal. It was a means to an end. Maybe, they could sense it.

I recently sold everything I owned to move to Lewisville, TX. It is quite possibly the scariest, but most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. It feels great to be surrounded by opportunity. I finally feel inspired again and no longer feel like I have to settle for less than what I want from a career. I was also admitted into my Ph.D. program at the University of North Texas. I will be pursuing my Doctorate of Learning Technologies over the next few years.

I interviewed for a position in the Lewisville Independent School District today as a Technology Specialist for their Business Department. I am confident the interview went well and hope that I get the position. It would be a very interesting job that utilizes my skills. I am also looking forward to a job that challenges me. If you can’t tell, I’m excited for all of the possibilities in my future.

Once I find work, my life won’t be far from perfect. My kids are in great schools. I love the area. I do miss my friends, but once I land this job, I’m sure we will see more of each other. 7hrs isn’t that far and I live 15 minutes from the airport. I’m sure we will manage. I’ll be sure to update when I land a job and I’ll likely blog a bit more when classes start.

Until next time….

You’ve probably seen this 100 times before. However, it still makes you go “well shit”. 

Interesting read.

Being afraid isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes, you need that trembling feeling to remind you how exciting it is to be doing something new.

She’s right in many ways.
