Last Year?

Adam is currently getting his second Masters Degree and we have been seriously thinking of what the outcome will be once he obtains it. His degree will be in Curriculum Development in Technology and he will be qualified to become an Educational Computer Strategist (ECS) for Clark County School District.

Basically he would still be in the school (perhaps even two) and he would be in charge of the educational technology and helping teachers and students utilize it in their classrooms.

Adam is so excited about this new prospect and always comes home and talks about how badly he wants to do it.

At the same time I'm a little sad. Adam is a fantastic teacher, and even though he will still be working with students and teachers it would be a whole new job, a whole new world for him. On the plus side, he'd be able to work more one on one, rather than worrying about class size or behavior.

There is something magical about being in a classroom teaching your own students, like having a little family.

I know Adam will do a great job with whatever he chooses, it will be a big change for him and I will support him if that is what he wants to do. He is very smart and capable and PASSIONATE (seriously, you should hear this guy talk about technology, you should have seen his face when we switched internet providers and our computer could suddenly do something I can't even understand but he was beside himself) about technology. He is LOVING his masters program and I know that he will do what is best!
