SOL - Day 19 - Back to school...again???

This morning at our faculty meeting, our assistant principal shared her journey with us about how she became an educator. I was very moved by her entire story but one moment in particular stuck out to me. She only made mention of it once in passing but it caught my attention. She had participated in a leadership program at the prestigious Rice University. During my lunch, I couldn't help but to look up the program. I have all the qualifications needed and the course work looks enticing and challenging.

Is this really happening? Am I really considering going back to school...yet again? I already went back for my Master's. Then again for my Principalship. I haven't even paid off all the student loans yet!

Honestly, it is a no-brainer. I would go back in a heartbeat (if I was accepted of course) if it weren't for the money. Is this the best use of my family's money at this time in our lives? Haven't I already used enough of our resources to go back to school in the past?

Time will tell I guess (although the deadline is approaching). I feel that this is fate a little bit. That I was meant to her that speech this morning that made me aware of this program that I didn't even know existed. Hmmmm..... what to do, what to do...............


  1. Like you, I'm always intrigued by a new program - learning is so appealing. I wonder if you will choose to go!

  2. Let us know what you decide!

  3. I want to know what you decide too. Are there any scholarship opportunities?
