THEY LOVE ME...THEY REALLY LOVE ME!
For several years I've tossed around the idea of getting my masters degree. I knew there were no programs in the Nashville Metro area. I had toyed around with the Mostly On-Line Masters in Art Ed from Ohio State University(even took a summer class a few years ago). However, OSU pushes research & theory, and I really wanted something hands on. I was not willing to get a masters in just anything to have a masters. I wanted something that would challenge me & I'd enjoy investing myself. This past fall(07)...Julie, Janet, & I met up at Panera's with our computers and started researching. Julie & Janet are two of my best friends...and we do everything art together. I found information about University of Idaho..and a new on-line program they were starting...Master of Arts in Teaching. The program had been established on the campus for many years, but they were putting it on-line Fall 08. We all decided to go for it. Applications had to be in by Feb. 1st. That was a fun process?!?!?!? We were told we'd be notified by April 1st. I e-mailed them March 31 to make sure this was still the case. I found out they moved the application deadline to March 15...so that pushed everything back. For the past two weeks I've been contacting them trying to find out when they were going to let us know. Today...I found out. I GOT ACCEPTED!!!! And so did Julie & Janet!!! I'M SO EXCITED(please remind me of this next years when I'm teaching full time and trying to get my homework/projects done!!!! ha ha).
