Follow me on my journey to earning a teaching degree at WGU Indiana. I'm not your typical young student! I am beginning my journey at the age of 42, with 4 children and working hard to achieve my dream. I began my quest for education at WGU on October 1st, 2010.

I passed

I am now officially finished with LCC1. I am happy to have that course behind me. Let me tell you that the test was no easy task to complete. I woke up deathly ill the morning of the test, and only by the grace of God was I able to take and complete it. The last 15 questions I guessed. I hit what ever letter looked good, I didn't read a thing. I figured it was better to hurry and finish than to vomit on the keyboard. Yes... I was that ill, believe me once I got home I vegetated in bed until the next day. I didn't even check to see if I passed until around 1 a.m. the next morning. There was a 4 hour limit for the test, I finished it in a record 72 minutes. I had too... lol.. I thought I was going to die if I took any longer. None the less I am done, finished, it is over !!!

Now on to the next course. I have already started it and hope to complete it in the next couple of weeks, maybe sooner if I can get the kids to sit quiet for just a little while. That is my biggest battle, just the peace and quiet to work and write. I have to either get up very early in the morning, or stay up extremely late.

Test Tomorrow

Tomorrow I take my test for LCC1. Hopefully all goes well and that will be one more class finished. I have studied to the point that my brain feels like mush, and can't possibly absorb another fact.

I completed the first writing task for LCT and much to my surprise and excitement, I passed and now on my way to task 2 :).

Hopefully my next post tomorrow will be " I passed".

My first course finished

After completing EWB I was on my way to my first course. Health was the topic. It was pretty easy for me. Last fall I completed anatomy and physiology at another college and WGU's health course was mostly a repeat of things I covered there, and things I have learned from working in hospitals in previous years. I finished the health course in just a few short weeks.

Now I am studying literature and scheduled to take my test next week. I have found literature to be a bit challenging. The poetry section is something I have difficulty with. Poetry has never been my strong point and that is showing through during this course. Hopefully all will go well with my test next week, and LCC1 will be another notch on my education belt. The next challange will be the 4 writing task for the second part of my literature course. God willing I will find some time today to sit down and get started on my first writing task.

Welcome to my world!

October 1st, 2010, the day before my 42nd birthday, I began my journey to become a teacher.

After exhausting hopes of earning a degree, an answer to a prayer was bestowed upon me. The state of Indiana had a new school for people like me. I couldn't believe it! It all seemed to good to be true. I could work at my own pace, attend online and wouldn't go broke doing it. I had to find out more.

I called the WGU Indiana admitting department, and bombarded them with an exuberant amount of questions. After giving the admission department the third degree, I knew WGU was for me. The next day I registered, and after a whirlwind of transcripts, pre-admission testing, FASFA forms and more it was finished. I was a student on my way to fulfilling my dreams of becoming a teacher.
