As a teacher I know that things are constantly changing. When asked what my plan and goals for my career are, my usual response is “right now I am obtaining my masters degree while teaching in a DL setting which gives me the ability to stay home with my daughter. With all the government politics surrounding education
and teachers, I do not think I will be making any changes in the foreseeable future but I am tempted to re-evaluate when my own children are all old enough to go to school.”
Having a husband that was homeschooled until grade 11 and then attended the local Christian school for grade 12 and me having attended public school all the way through, it makes for some interesting discussions about our thoughts for our own children’s education. I feel as a parent my decision might be made a little easier with the fact that I am also a teacher and know (hopefully) more than other parents (non-teachers). With all the changes that are happening in the public school systems, my hope is to one day enter but if there is a lot of turmoil then I am also happy staying with my position teaching DL.
More and more technology is coming into the public schools anyways so who knows, in 20 years there may not be much of a difference at all anymore?
