A few days ago my wife blogged about my crazy schedule and indeed she is correct. I thought being unemployed was going to be sitting around watching Netflix and drinking Starbucks all day but that’s not me. If you didn’t read her blog please do - she is an amazing write http://badalice.blogspot.com/.
It didn’t take me too long to figure out what I wanted to do next, because I have for the past several years been wanting to TEACH. I was actually three-fourths of the way through a Master’s program in Elementary Education when I stopped because I would be required to drop my paid work to take on unpaid student teaching. My family needed my support so I put off that dream. Instead I got a Master’s degree in Educational Technology. Guess what? I no longer have a job that demands meaningless work. Now I can focus on something I have been wanting to do for years.
I love kids. I love learning. I love teaching. My mind is always
turning. I am always on the Internet learning about new things. I
love education. I will be a great teacher.
But, I have to fix my ears because I can’t understand a word when I’m doing classroom
observations, or when I try to talk with classmates or my college advisor on the
phone. I hear noises but not speech. But, no worry. I pray my
surgery date for CI will be soon.
My name is Jeff Swartz and I live in Atlanta, GA. I am married to wonderful wife and have two teenaged daughter.
