But then I looked at the Diploma in Education Support (the new name) subjects the other day. Hmmmm...I dunno. There appears to me, to be a vast chasm between a Certificate 3 and a Diploma! However, if at some time in the future I decided I wanted to get a degree I'd need the Diploma first.
I am sensing a light at the end of the tunnel for the term as well. It's been a long and full-on term. I feel like I've taken in more of what my professional role is, and gotten a bit more comfortable with who I am as a working mother, as oppossed to working just one day and still feeling very much like a SAHM. It's taken a bit of mental work to get to feeling comfortable with it all, given I'd never really made plans to return to work.

I had a funny start to the morning. No he's not here...yes he is... and by recess....oh, nope, he's going home again. There are about 4 other Prep's complaining of similar symptoms that had my student returned home. *sigh*
Last Thursday, neither of my two students were at school!
