A teacher you say?

It turns out that best kept secret of the University of Iceland is the International Program. I had never even heard of the thing until last week, but it exists, and is done completely in English, although you can take some Icelandic classes.
And what can you do with this international program? You can get your bachelors in Education, something that can be very useful if you decided to teach English in the schools, work in a playschool or even move back to your own country, at least you could show something for the time away right?
So thats my plan. Back to school it is, next August. And after a few years I can teach! Or take more schooling because this International Program also has Masters Programs. Yes Yes Yes.
From this day forward I walk with a lighter step, for now I have something to look forward to, I am going back to school!
**Best part is that when I was in highschool I wanted to be a teacher, among everything else, but teacher did come up.
***I should also mention that I am not sure that I like children enough to teach them, but I am working on that. I have three of my own and there alright, usually :)

  1. You just go girl. I went to school in Moose Jaw in 1991. I was born in 1951. Ask Stephan how old I was then. If he does not know the answer, it is time you practice teaching. The best part about this is the fact you are smart. So you just go girl!!

  2. Though I am sure the program will have its problems, I am sure it will be a really great step for you! Toys R Us was no where near good enough for such a smart, helpful gal like yourself.

  3. Ko-Leen I think this would be a smart career choice and I think you would be am awesome at it, so go for it
