Week 1 done
« on: June 19, 2016, 02:49:40 PM »
Having left a career of 25 years I have found myself unable to get a decent job for a few months.  So I am back in school working on an MIT (Master's in Teaching) degree.  The good news is that I will start earning a salary in September when I start teaching.  The bad news is that I will be still going to school full time while learning a new job.  So my brewing activities are going to be but a memory. 

I'll be teaching Special Ed in what is called an SST classroom.  SST stands for Social Skills Training.  It is a class for kids with behavioral problems, most particularly violence/anger issues.

Anyway I have one week of this semester done.  The semester by the way is crammed into six weeks.  You should see my list of assignments due! :o   So I will be scarce on this forum until next June when I graduate and the school year ends.  See you all then!

Best of luck. Mrs R was an aid for a while in a Special Ed. classroom. It can be emotionally draining.

Good luck Steve.

I went back to school cold after 8 years out of high school for my BA in Electrical Engineering. It was a tough road: 18-20 hour days between full time school and full time work for nearly 4 years straight. I wish you the best and look forward to seeing you back on the forum when time permits.

Yeah, been there, done that - twice. Full time work and full time college is brutal. Pays off in the end though.

Remember that you can always put a small extract batch together once in a while, just to scratch your itch.

Good luck Steve, you will be missed here.
I had my son in college and finished my BA at night while cooking in a restaurant full time during the day then commuted 1 1/2 hours each way to law school in Boston for 3 years while cooking part time at night and raising a toddler. I remember making pots of coffee at midnight. That was in my twenties, no way I could do that now.
It sounds like good work your doing, you can have a big impact on those kids lives.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.
