Hey Paige! Smart girl taking graduate classes as an undergraduate! We do not know if the pay will be there for a Master's Degree but if they take it away there will be a lot of educators leaving. With frozen salaries and no other way to get a raise I don't see many staying long. I just hope that our legislature will see the right thing in time. I love teaching and I am going to stick it out but I hear the talk of a lot of people around me and it doesn't sound good!

I will say this. I mainly went to get my Master's for the pay increase. Without that incentive I wouldn't have enrolled. After being in the program I have learned SO much and I hate to see that some people will not go back and learn those things because there is no incentive. :-/. So good for you on getting a head start!

How do you like living in Boone? I live in Winston Salem but my husband used to live in Boone and all I hear about is how much he wants to move back and it is the greatest place on earth!

      Hey Paige! What kind of crafting do you like to do? I am crafty too.

        Morgan, I do a variety of crafting, but I enjoy knitting and pottery. I also like painting and sketching. Pottery is probably my favorite. What types of crafting are you into?

        Breanna, I am really conflicted about teacher pay. I love teaching. I have missed doing it over this summer, and working in an office job part-time this summer has reminded me of why I wanted to be a ... more

          It is a conflicting thing. Your happiness is what matters. I promise you, if you don't love it you won't last long! :) The weather has been the same here! It is really odd for us. I really like... more

      Glad you could join the class. I think you can do all of the assignments in preparation for teaching, as opposed to preparing for your actual class. If any of the assignments doesn't seem to fit,... more

        I think this class will be great to start a collection of electronic resources. Between your class last fall and Dr. Ward's, I am getting a nice assortment of reading resources. I'll try to remember... more
