As a group of lifelong learners, we are in a community of teachers who are often getting additional degrees and certificates, some are for career advancement, while others are just for growth and learning. With that in mind, we are discussing the pros and cons of teachers pursuing additional degrees. Show Notes: We kick off our episode with a goofy question: Were you a good student in high school, good at “doing school,” both or neither? - Joining us from Texas is Lee Ferguson: Both. My grades in high school were good, but I was also good at playing the game of school because I was a rule follower. College was a whole other ballgame. - Joining us from Colorado is Hannah Hathaway: I think I was a fairly traditional good student. There were some times where I “played the game” of school, but mostly I liked my classes and liked doing work because I enjoyed learning. That’s probably why I was a student for so long, lol. - Joining us from Missouri is Kelly Kluthe: More good at playing school than actually being a good student, but I was also a strict rule-follower and enjoyed school a lot. I just didn’t have any good study or metacognition skills. - Aaron: More good at school than a good student in high school. Questions Discussed: What would motivate you to apply for a graduate program at this point in your career? Or if you have done so, why did you apply? What are some of the barriers that make attending a graduate program challenging? (Should I say that time is a given?) What are some of the options out there for working teachers looking to attend programs? Credits: Please subscribe to Life of the school on your podcast player of choice!
