So, I think getting a Masters in English as a Second Language (ESL) is the best decision I can make. This is, until I realize, maybe more than ESL, I want a career in early childhood education…which is naturally another degree. Not that it’s so bad since I can double major, more just I wish I would have considered this before.
Looking back, I realize how that my ‘vision of the future’ was a bit narrow. I don’t want to necessarily teach ESL for forever, however I do love little kids and could see life taking me more down that route. Therefore I’ve decided to reward myself with another year of college. Hurrah.
That is of course until I get back to America and do another stint getting my teaching degree. I am a glutton for punishment. I like ‘higher education’ but after attending college for five years straight (well, more like seven) but how’s counting anymore? Hell, I want to work in a school for the rest of my life. But the threat of deadlines…
I wish someone would have warned me even slightly of this stuff growing up…not that I would have listened to them anyway. Maybe that’s why, you just have to figure it out for yourself. I suppose that route how its ups but right now the downs are fairly even numbered.
