So this past Monday, I started my first graduate course in pursuit of my Master's Degree! I am beyond excited...and a little nervous. My life already felt like a juggling act, and I just added a great big ball to the mix! I'm hoping the next 18 months fly by and that I can still work towards being the wife, mother, and teacher that I want to be.
I'm getting my Master's through the University of Texas at Arlington. They have an academic partnership that allows you to get your Master's in Curriculum and Instruction - Math Studies completely online. You take one class at a time. Each class runs for five weeks, then you get a week off before the next class starts. It's a total of 36 hours and takes 18 months to complete. I'll let you know how it goes, but after working out some initial technology issues and getting over starting off a couple of days behind because of those issues, I'm pleased with the overall experience.
