Since it is July 1st, I thought today would be a good day to force myself to read and write daily. I'm switching jobs in the fall (from working with early learners the past dozen years into my field of junior high English), and I need to catch up . . . quickly. I am also a person who needs to SEE progress--so I am hoping this written record will help.
This summer I am trying to complete my catechist certification. I'm taking online courses through Univ. of Dayton. These courses are SUPPOSED to be 5-7 hours worth of work; one class at a time is recommended. I enrolled for two five-week courses now and two in August--leaving me just one class when school starts. I am either really slow (I know this to be true) or these classes underestimate the amount of time spent to complete assignments. I feel this is my full time job!
