The Plan


I just realized that I never really explained the graduate school plan that I overly organized in the last post. Silly me. You're probably wondering, what graduate school program for Education lasts from 2009 to 2013? I'll tell you which one does. The Peace Corps International Master's. I'll give you the rundown. One year of classes in one of two majors; middle or secondary education (math, science, or english) or international education development. Since I can't even really stand fifth graders, I'm thinking middle or secondary education is not for me. Just a hunch.

After I finish that one year of classes I enter the Peace Corps. For 27 months. Count 'em, 27. I will more than likely be sent to either Eastern Europe or Africa. Crossing my fingers for Africa.

27 months later I will re-enter graduate school and finish up. You know, all that thesis stuff. Blah, blah, blah.

Oh, and did I mention I'm taking 6 months off before I do any of this.

Hence the four year time line.
