Worried About Class Already

I'm in semi-crisis mode. I registered for class yesterday and they gave me Intro to Teaching. Which I wouldn't have a problem with except you are required to earn 25 "clock hours of classroom experience" to complete the course. I know my job isn't anything to be wowed by. But I do need the job to pay for things, and I happen to work 10 - 2 Monday through Friday. We have very few employees so getting someone who can work that slot that I do is just about impossible at this point. I have no idea how I will be able to get these 25 hours of class time considering my work schedule.

You are still at home right? Will you be receiving your financial aid at all? It might not be a bad idea to put the job on hold and invest all your time in school. I'm not sure what your financial obligations but it doesn't sound like that would be a big problem.

I'm still at home, but they don't have any money to help me pay for class. I might have just enough in my savings to pay for all the classes I'll need, but I need money for other stuff too, including books. If I didn't have work I could go full time, which would be nice, but I'd run out of money really fast. And a job on campus could only give me half as many hours as I have now.

Sounds like you're in a pinch.

What grade do you need to get your clock hours in? Grade school, high school?

If it doesn't matter, any alternative schedule schools in your area? Schools that start early, or end late, or evening classes?

Been too many years since I've been to school. Just throwing out some things that came to my mind.

Best of luck to you.

I'm thinking I could get in an hour or so every day before work. I'll have to see what the professor says. First class is Monday.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
