Taking the Proverbial Bull By the Horns
Anyone who knows me is that I am not a terribly contemplative person.  I come up with an idea, think it through for a bit and leap.
 
Sometimes this gets me in trouble.  Other times, it's proven to be good way to be.
 
I've send emails to a couple local colleges to inquire about their Teaching Intern Certification.  As far as I can tell, it looks like through this program, you can start teaching while taking courses to get your certification.  That description is surely more simplistic than reality...and of course there is the issue of funding...both for me and the courses!  Hmmm.  That's the only "fear factor" I'm dealing with in this whole idea.
 
Anyway, in the meantime, I've also signed up to take an online course in pastoring children.  I'm hoping by doing that as well I can ascertain if I can handle juggling course work, work, church and life, without giving up too much.  I think I can, I think I can!  I was really excited to see that I already own one of the two books for this course but haven't had a chance to get through it yet.  What a great opportunity.
 
I have to admit, I am somewhat of a geek when it comes to learning.  I absolutely love school - I love taking classes and learning.  For me, lifelong learning is very important.  And since getting my graduate degree in 2000, I haven't taken any classes or really focused on learning anything new at all (except for things in relation to my job or my faith - and really, I have learned a lot in both areas during that time).  It's really hard to express my excitement about both the course I am planning to take and also this potential for teaching in the long-term!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  But I am bubbling over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am trying to catch up on your blogs but you actually do learn from one day to the next, whether it is through your life, work, friends, faith, family -
one geek learner to another!
