I can remember the time when I was trying to start my family. It was so hard planning around my employer’s work schedule and trainings. Then I started panicking about what time of year would be appropriate to take maternity leave. What I came to find out is that the old adage is very true – while you are busy planning, life happens around you while you aren’t paying attention. Your plan is already written.
I got stuck in a trap of worrying and planning and found myself busy trying to create a perfect plan. Well, that isn’t how life goes, and as much as you try, often the timing is never perfect.
Four years later we finally became parents. My work schedule evened out and I found my employer to be friendly and flexible. I was also trying to obtain my Masters in Education at the same time.
There are so many helpful ways to achieve your degree these days. I found that a majority of my classes were offered in a long distance learning format. Long distance learning can be done in a few ways.
The most popular – something that has been gaining traction for years – is via the internet or what is commonly referred to as online classes.
This option was extremely helpful. There were days where the only time I could study or read was during my child’s nap. I could not drive to a class or get child care so it was great for me. My Masters in Education is now complete via this great online, distance learning process!
