Are you ready for the country?

At 55 I have left corporate life and the city of Chicago behind. I want to use my love of chemistry and my engineering degree outside of the cubicle farms of the world’s largest oil company. I have moved, along with my husband, horses, dog and cat, to the real farms of rural Missouri.  As Neil Young wrote; “Because it’s time to go.”

I have limited platform skills, an unremarkable voice, and no classroom experience. However, I have organization skills and a good work ethic so that will have to suffice. Today I enrolled in the program offered by the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence (ABCTE) because it is on-line and recognized in the state of Missouri.

I am writing this blog for two reasons:

1. to help me reflect as I learn about teaching

2. to connect with others on this path.

Next step: Orientation.
