Back to School

So I am going back to school, Well sorta. I have been working in Child care pretty consistently for 10 years now. I have a lot of experience but not a lot of certificates to back it up. Sure I have my Associates Degree but that is a whole lot of whoopee. I decided it was time to go for my CDA (Child Development Associates). So I ordered a through the mail training course pack and it came yesterday. I am really excited to finally be on my way to a CDA and kinda be back in school. I just have to finish 120hours of training, put together a professional file full of mission type statements and then pay like 300 bucks to have someone observe me teach. I do wish they accepted my college courses but since they are more than 5 years ago they do not count. If they did that I could probably skip the training hours cuz I would already have them. It is really frustrating to spend money on a child development and guidance course when you can pretty much pass the quiz without ever reading the material but.... I will do what it takes so my boss will finally take me seriously as a Teacher.


  1. Wow! It is so hard to go back to school, especially after you've taken an extended period of time away. Best of luck with this next phase (as if you weren't busy enough.)

  2. good luck with going back to school! but you don't need it, you'll do great!
