Call me crazy, shake your head – I’m going back to school. Over the past few years as I’ve realized that I love teaching and how little I really know about teaching and learning, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about doing some formal education on, well, education. Since I can’t just quit my job and go back to being a grad student (Tessa would kill me), in 2006/07 I enrolled in UBC Vancouver’s Faculty Certificate Program. Its an 8 month program where I went out to Vancouver once a month to learn some education fundamentals. While doing that program I met Harry, an education faculty member who specializes in post-secondary curriculum issues – exactly what I was looking for. With the move to UBCO, the possibility of doing some grad work with Harry has become a reality. I am officially enrolled as a part-time masters student in the faculty of education at UBCV starting next spring. I’m going to complete it over the next couple summers so that I can still work full time and pay the bills. My expectations for the program are high although I suspect that I’ll be left with more questions than when I started – that is generally the sign of successful education. As Christmas nears I hope you have taken the time to shovel some snow, drink some eggnog, eat some Christmas oranges, and kiss a loved one. Happy holidays!
