I had some big news yesterday….news that is about to seriously change my life. Yesterday I learned that I was accepted into the masters program at Hebrew College. Hebrew College is in Boston, but their Masters in Jewish Education can be obtained 100% online, which is why the program appealed to me. I begin in the Fall, and the degree should take me 3 years to complete.
It is scary to go back to school after being away for so many years. It must be more commonly done than you’d actually think though, because I was also awarded the Legacy Mid-Career Fellowship, which is designed for returning students just like me. The fellowship will bring 15 of us together once a year at a conference and also reduces my tuition by 50%. It is definitely meant to encourage returning students, and I am just so honored to be a part of this group of individuals.
There is such a fear of the unknown ahead of me…mostly about how I’m going to juggle everything in my life: work, family and now school! I will be a part time student though…3 classes a semester all helping me gain more knowledge for my career.
So….here I am….wife, mommy, daughter, teacher, friend, Aunt, employee, and student! Holy moly!!!!!
My song of the day is a classic. It’s Chuck Berry performing “School Days,” which takes on new meaning for me today. This is one rockin’ tune for some really valuable days ahead!
