Lolo has been thinking about medical coding as a side job from home, possibly leading to an AAS in Health Informational Technology, so she signed up for the Medical Terminology pre-req, to give her a feel for the field. She starts the end of Aug, at night.
Rae has decided on a Master's in Educational Studies, with a concentration in Leadership or Cirriculum Design, and is starting that part-time, nights, in the fall. Right now, she is not interested in Admin, as in being a Principal, but she is a Dept Head and said either of those areas would take her career forward. She only had a few minutes to talk, so I'll have to get the rest of the story later.
I know she had put her Masters plans on hold before, so she could have time to spend with her bf in the evenings, and because she didn't have a real idea what she wanted to do. Now they are broke up, but are trying to work things out. However, a couple weeks apart has brought some clarity to her, and she has decided she WON'T throw everything over her shoulder (ie-give up her 7 years career in Chicago Public Schools, move to a suburb & live in a townhouse she hates, pass on having children, AND say "It was ALL my fault. I have to fix myself.") just to make him happy. So she is moving forward, with the hope that he will meet her half-way. I'm glad.
