So as most of you know I teach school--this means that I only have 8 days left of work until summer break~~ YEAH~~
Well I decided to be adventurous and 'Cease the Day' and get my masters degree through the University of Utah. So I crammed back in Feb. took the GRE ( now that is a test that will make you feel like an idiot) Passed it got accepted into the program at the U. Then I'm talking to my academic advisor and he tell me that there might be a way to get a huge grant, but he'll have to see if there is funding left, and see what kind of strings he can pull. He tells me that he'll get back to me Wed or Thurs of the next week. So he calls me on Wednesday with the 'bestest' news in the world! He worked it out so that I can get the grant to get my Severe Special Education endorsement which they pay me to do, then I turn around and finish my masters with only 15 credits left and pay for it with the money they paid me~ Sweet Deal eh?
So needless to say, though I only have 8 days left to teach I'm going to be busting my but with my own classes!!
