Have I taken on too much???



I don't know if I have taken on too much, but I am going to give it my all! I signed up to begin a graduate certificate program. Last night was the first class. I spent the weekend reading the text book and doing a very small assignment. The class I am currently taking is Foundations of Instructional Technology. The meeting tonight was the only one that will be face to face. The rest is all online and will require a bit of my time. I have to figure out how to manage my time and still do some of the things I like/need to do. If my time blogging is sporadic I hope you understand why!

Yesterday I had a required observation by the principal at school. (Today is my second and last for the year). I also had to go to a child study meeting regarding a boy in my class I have concerns about. Then, I had to go back for a quick meeting with the principal. After school I had to go to the local community college for my class. I feel like all day yesterday was such a blur!

I am so sorry I haven't been able to get to your blogs. It doesn't mean I don't love you !

take care,
Dawn

My goodness, Dawn, I'm exhausted just reading about your day! Don't you worry about us...we know you love us...and you're very much loved right back! Hope today's a bit less hectic for you!

Tracy said...

Love you too, Dawn! ;o) But what exciting days! Your new studies sound very interesting. I will be curious to learn how you like the whole study-class online approach to learning for something like this. Hope today is a little more slower-paced...Happy week! ((HUGS))

Hi Dawn,
Good luck with your certification! I know you must be very busy...I don't see how you manage to do all the posting that you do!

I still love you even if you don't visit each day. BTW, I tagged you! If you are too busy, don't worry about doing it!

You're doing it the right way: one foot in front of the other. Do the most important things first. Eventually, you'll be finished and amazed that you were able to accomplish so much, but you won't remember much of the blurs!

You have your hands full so we all understand. I appreciate teachers like you so much!!! You are molding our future!!
Good luck with your program!

Good luck with your new endeavor. I used to go to night school while working. That took me 7 years. I sometimes wonder how I did it.

Darlene said...

Good luck Dawn with your certification. We all love you whether you can come to our blogs or not!♥

Okay, so know I need to sit down and rest after reading your post. I'm tired for you!
Good luck with your course and just remember "one thing at a time".
I hope the observation goes well and that the parents are open to your concerns regarding their child. That can be tough sometimes.
Hugs and we'll be here!

Oh my goodness Dawn, you are busy. Good luck with the certificate program. You can visit when you get a chance, but don't stress over it!

Pheeeewww! You are one busy girl. Just take a deep breath once in a while. Love your blog. Darrell ps miss you on ravelry (no pressure, just saying)

Caren said...

Good for you Dawn! You sound awfully busy but it will be worth it in the end.

I also wanted to comment on your post from a couple days ago. I read "The Host" and it was really good. I hate to say, I might have liked it better than the "Twilight" series. I don't know what I was expecting, but I thought those were just OK. Fun to read but just OK. "The Host" was a little slow in the beginning but I ended up really enjoying it. Let me know what you think if you get it!

To answer your question if I have ever visited a blog I try to write it down in my notebook so I could go back. I also keep ideas that pop into my head for blog posts. Just random things associated with blogging.

Hi Dawn!
I was getting a bit worried about you...both you and Shelia but I'm glad you've just been busy...and hopefully everything will settle in for you.
Good for you for taking a course too. We'll just all have to understand...you have to do your best you know.

Guess what? ...actually its me...Judi from Wordpress! I have moved. I'm no longer at wordpress. If you go to my site you'll see my new address which is actually...on blogspot.
and I'm CranberryBlossom without the judicreations bit.

hope you have had a great evening.

Good luck with all you are doing! My daughter graduates in May with her teaching degree and is looking at a master's in special ed this fall if she can't find a job. She thinks she will be able to sub a lot and take classes is she doesn't.

Hugs!
