Back to School Again


The Author of this post is Velma Baird

I have decided to go back to school and pursue a doctorate in education. I have taught the third grade for the last twenty years ( since I got out of undergrad). I went back while I was teaching and got a master’s degree in education, but I feel like my true calling is in teaching administration. To be a administrative teacher you usually have to pursue a doctoral degree. The doctoral program that I got into at the University of Texas is a residential program. So yes, I will be getting another taste of college life. I will also only be teaching part-time. I am determined to save money over the next three years, as my salary is being cut. I made sure to Shop Electric Rates Texas to find the right provider. I am also going to utilize university services that are much cheaper than going to private services. For example, I am using the university gym. I love being back in college!

Education is very difficult. I just finished with my Masters and it has been a difficult path but worth all the effort.

With 5 weeks left on my Master's and the Doctrine program waiting I can honestly say....I want my weekends back! LOl...it's rougher the second time around, wish I hadn't have wasted my youth on beer and boys :)

In TN Admin educators only have to have a Master's...could explain why they lack in education.

Good luck to you!
Moms in school rule!

I congratulate you on your decision! My father was a secondary teacher, my daughter is a primary teacher, and both loved the interaction with children. Administration is important, though; a good principal can make all the difference in a school's success! All the best to you.
