I am! Halfway through. My biggest help has been to get an agenda book so I can map out all of my assignments and classes and see where I’m going to be congested with overload. I would also take all of your electives early if you can so you can focus on your final project with a smaller load the last semester

Masters in English Language Learning- loving it! Three days a week uninterrupted study. Work stays at work except one day during the week. Don’t forget to take time to play with family and friends!

I did...18 years ago! So worth it, but my mom and sister helped a lot with my son. I stayed focused and just did it.

Prioritize teaching. Got to be able to do things for your masters that are good enough and not stress over being perfect.

I got my bachelors. masters and specialist while working full time and had three kids at home. It takes a lot of patience and planning but it can be done.

Out of curiosity. How would a company view a potential candidate who has a period of unemployment to study for the CPA. I am considering to start studying for the exam but I know I would need to leave my employer in order to give 110%. I am contemplating the idea of at least passing one part while employed. Then leaving my employer to study FAR. I am considering to leave my current employer anyways, so it’s more of how my future employer would view that lapse.

Anyone in a LDR ? I’ve been in a LDR for 5 years now, and I’m really sad about how long it takes for me and my partner to build our future projects. I knew it would take this long bc we live in 2 different countries, two nationalities. It’s just taking so much time and I’m loosing patience, but my partner is blaming me for being negative/not being patient and not supporting us at the moment. I’d love to discuss with someone living a similar experience.

I'm one of 3 learning strategists at my school. However, I'm the MAIN strategist that cover for absent teachers. I just finished taking over a grade until it was filled with a new teacher. Admin works closely with the other 2. I'm not included in any school data/presentation to help the new teachers on staff. I believe the other strategists are working against me. They are assigned classes when I'm not available. The union says it's at the principal's discretion. What would you do?
