Today is Josh’s first day of fall semester of his master’s degree program in Math Education. It is also his first day of teaching at a university! Josh will be working part-time teaching at IUPUI campus and taking classes part-time at IUPUI. And we’re so excited about it!
Josh completed his first two courses of his master’s degree during second summer block and what a mad dash that was! 6 weeks, 3 nights of classes a week, and about 5 hours of class per night. It was intense and his classes were tough, but he did excellent! He got an A and an A+ in his advanced math courses – Intermediate Abstract Algebra and Projective Geometry. I may not have seen him much for six weeks, but it definitely paid off. He’s a smarty pants. But, I always knew that.
His schedule for fall is busy, but not as jammed packed as summer term. He’s got a head start on lesson planning for the classes he’s teaching and we hope that it will go well as Josh is looking into teaching at the University level permanently.
That means he will no longer be working at Scecina Memorial High School. He will no longer have Saint Pius to welcome him to school each day:
He’s one of about 10 teachers to leave the school this year. We wish Scecina the best and thank them for the last two years.
And now, what am I going to be up to?
Well, that’s a good question. This morning I’m up early (thanks to a messy diaper) and made some breakfast for Josh and packed his lunch (doubtful that will continue!). And then I plan on taking a walk with a friend, which we hope to make a regular occurrence at least twice a week. I also have an art project or two on the horizon as of yesterday, and am still looking for ways to earn money from home during the school year to help our meager income. I have some ideas, but we’ll see what will/can pan out for us.
Wish us luck that we’ll have a good semester!
