Goals for 2019
#1
What are your Goals for 2019? Anything education related or not. Studies show if you write down your goals and share them you are more likely to achieve. Up to 5 goals because any more than that is too many.

Here are my goals for 2019:

1) Finish my Bachelor's degree. Shouldn't be too hard as I'm currently only 15 credits away from a BALS.

2) Read 200 books. Might sound crazy, but I read over 130 in 2018

3) Give at least one tedx talk.

Reach 18 graduate credit hours in Economics. I'm currently at 16 and I'm eyeing a summer seminar for teachers in NYC.

Finish the NationsU master's in theology. If I get this one, I get it.

Why so mach graduate credit? Does it give you extra teaching endorsements? Doesn't undergraduate credit do the same thing?

Not saying this to be mean or critical just curious how teaching endorsements work.

  1. Complete my BSBA in January
  2. Start on the pre-work towards the WGU MBA ITM as soon as I can dig up the course requirements/syllabi during my downtime.
  3. Graduate with my BSBA and ASNSM in March
  4. Officially start my MBA in April (I'd like to have at least a few of the papers complete by my start date).
  5. Finish my MBA within 3-4 months
  6. Stretch goal is to start on a DBA or PhD in 2019. But that will be predicated on going back to work first so someone else can help pay for it. Smile
  7. Alternatively, if I get accepted into the GA Tech OMSCS I might go that direction after the MBA but before the doctorate.

"Why so much graduate credit?"

I teach high school English and economics.  I have an MAT from 2003 that is a general teaching master's degree.  The accrediting agencies now ask for 18 credits in the subject area to teach college classes.  This makes me qualified to teach community college classes and dual enrollment hs/college classes.

The NationsU master's is just for fun.

The Walden program has educational leadership graduate credits that I think I can use to qualify for an administrative certificate.  It's free and I don't intend to complete the entire program.

Do the 18 credits have to be graduate credit to teach college?

Yeah the saw the free Walden offer. It was a really interesting thread to see all the geeking out over free education.

Some of us can't pass up a deal. The Harvard Poetry courses were and are $50 per graduate credit! The courses starting in January may be the last cheap ones.

For community colleges, you need a Masters in the subject or an unrelated Masters plus 18 graduate credits in the subject. That is the minimum.
Working on TESU BA CompSci/English, but may not graduate until Sept, Dec, or later.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.
First Masters complete. Slowly working on a second Masters but may start a different program.

Is there still a way to sign up for the Harvard Poetry? I'm a poet myself and that's a good price. I don't have a Bachelor's degree though.
