So, I worked on my coursework for this week's part of my 4 week online class. I'm doing 3 of these online classes in order to get enough contact hours to move my teaching certificate into licensure. I needed 20.5contact hours more (20 contact hours = 1 semester hour). Each of these 4 week classes is 12 contact hours. Since they were a set of 3, I decided to sign up for all of 'em. ($45 for the first course, $20 for the other two. Pretty cheap if you ask me.) The course is over physical science teaching and the Ohio physical science standards. I'd say over 60% of the students in this class are special education teachers, because thanks to
Still, the class hasn't been all that bad, and I'm realizing that maybe, just maybe, I do have enough discipline to do an online class. I have one more week of this class to go, and I'll probably do all the coursework before I go to Chicago. (If not, I can easily do it while on vacation! I love online stuff!) If it's true that I do have the discipline for it, I might look into some online university classes - maybe even a Masters degree program.
Leo's excited to have me home (and up) today. He's showing his affection by sitting on my class book while I'm doing my online homework and playing with my (dwindling numbers of) paper clips and all sorts of fun "Yay! Trina's home!" things. :-) I love my damn cat. :-)
