I finished the course work for an Educational Specialist degree in June, 2007. For those of you who don't know, it is another 36 college hours after a masters degree. If I wanted, and that I am not sure of yet.... I could go back to school and complete my Educational Doctorate degree in another 42 college hours...
Any way, another part of the degree program is to write a thesis which I have been writing since June. I got stuck on one of my chapters, chapter 5 to be exact... and it took me six weeks just to write that one. Not to bore you or anything but my thesis was How to use the ISLLC standards to procure a quality principalship.
Next in the process is defending what I wrote and then taking the ISSLC exam. I have taken one ISLLC exam and did quite well, so that doesn't worry me at all. Its $500 so I will prepare well for it since I can't afford to take it twice!
Graduation will be in December, if I defend my paper well. It's a neat ceremony where you are hooded. I just hope Ashley isn't graduating at the same time!
