Back to school, anyone?

At Reilly's kindergarten assembly, her school featured a new orchestra. They started it as a trial to see what the interest would be. They expected about 15 - 20 students to sign up and had 50. While they were playing, I had a disgusted look on my face and my friend thought that I was disgusted at how the violins played, but that wasn't the case. I thought that all those students for one teacher was a bit extreme! Some of the students had really bad posture because their teacher didn't have time to correct that problem. That's where a teacher aid or private teacher comes in handy. So, after talking to the teacher, and her thinking that I had a degree, I thought it might not be such a bad idea to finish my degree and teach in a classroom like that. I'd only have 2 years to go (if I kill myself) and she said that there will be a huge need for another teacher at their school in a year or two. It's perfect! She's going to contact me after the first of the year about volunteering in the class to help with posture and one-on-one needs.

So, I just finished my application to Utah Valley University. They are open enrollment right now because they're trying to beef up the student body since becoming a university. Hopefully there won't be any problems getting in. I'll know in 48 hours if I've been accepted and then I can enroll for the semester starting in January. Cross your fingers for me!!!
