I just got my grade for my final course at Chapman: A. That’s nine classes in a row with an A each. Chapman is the first college at which I’ve ever earned a 4.0 GPA. I went there for my entire credential program plus one master’s course. I knew I could pull off a 4.0 if I really applied myself.
I’m now working on a little entomology class at a community college. It’s cool. I love biology and I love insects. The teacher is good, and we’ll get to go out, and find and look at bugs.
On April 1st I’ll choose another science class for the summer. Then I’ll have over 32 college units in science, and then I’ll be qualified to teach science under No Child Left Behind. I still plan to eventually take the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET) in biology, but it looks really comprehensive. I’ll need a couple of new refresher courses in biology, plus maybe a $60 XAM study guide.
In the fall, as I mentioned earlier, I hope to begin my master’s in art.
