Grad School

I haven't posted in quite a while and I am not sure if anyone even bothers to look here any more.I thought I did owe folks an explanation, in case they drop by again.

The primary reason I am not posting is that I am in online Grad School working on a Masters in Secondary Education. That is consuming all my free time. Two papers a week and participation in online discussions takes time and my creative juices. I am preparing for life after the Coroner's Office (December 2012). I have decided on a career change to what has always been my second choice for a career. I am going to teach high school or middle school, and I am looking forward to the future.

As I told a group of students recently at a career day event I participated in. Never be locked into what you think you are going to do for the rest of life. We really can never be sure what we will "do" "when we grow up".

Eh, there's at least one person checking in to see if you are updating.

My father taught high school. Good for you. Teaching can be a rewarding profession. Will you even be updating the blog sporadically?

I have really missed your blog--good to have you back...but I'm just wondering, have you ever thought of writing a book about your experiences? I have a feeling you could tell us a lot!!
