One of the biggest reasons I haven't been able to post lately is because I've been working on getting into Virginia's Career Switchers program to become a middle/high school English teacher. The program starts on Aug. 20 and will last through December. During this time, I'll be doing work online and going to Saturday classes once a month. I'll also be working in one of our local schools while keeping my job at the newspaper. It's going to be a very busy fall, but it will be worth it when I can teach in a classroom and share my love of learning with young people.
