But Wait! There's More!!
So dear readers, you may have already deduced that I am a very busy person. For those of you who hadn't worked that one out, I am a musician, music teacher, ballroom dancer and dance instructor. So what more could I possibly add to my busy schedule?? Well, how about a Diploma of Education! I think that I can actually hear my siblings from here!!! I have just applied for a place at a uni here to do my dip. ed. I am almost assured a place so I will be starting next semester. Yes, in a couple of months! Why on earth would someone want to do this? For years I have been teaching music and because I don't have the little piece of paper saying that I have any education qualifications, I am not recognised as a teacher, financially or otherwise. Its time to get that recognition and open up some pathways for myself. I have been stuck in a rut for some time now and here is my opportunity to do something about it. It's a one year full time and two year part time course. I am going to do it in eighteen months. There are some members of my family that I will not be telling until I have to as this may cause them some stress (hint hint siblings!). But I am determined to this and I have support in the important places and some very high places too. Wish me luck as I venture into this storm and I will emerge the other end a qualified teacher.
