Time now for me to cover the formal part of my education. After living with Pat, and being encouraged to grow my mind, I realised that not all education had to be as tortuous as High School.
Me in 2006 part way through my triple major
It was actually a combination of Pat, and my apprenticeship as a Hair Dresser that showed me I like to learn. I like to challenge my mind. As part of my apprenticeship I went to TAFE one day a week. When this was finished I opted to do more training. The first was an easy choice I became a qualified tutor, and tutored the students at TAFE. While doing this I also completed A Certificate II in Arts.
But it was not until after I had Tamika that I was bitten by the education bug big time. When she started school, I started university. I worked full time and studied part time. So it was slow going through some of my degrees. But I managed to do a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Photography, at
. Griffith University
Next another Bachelor of Arts, this time I went crazy and did a triple major, Art History, Media Studies and Literature Studies. Yup a triple on top of work and being a single Mum. There were lots of nights I thought I would go crazy. But I not only completed all three, I completed the three with a GPA of 6.75.
A couple of years off study I thought I would go back for more and did a Graduate Diploma of Education. Well almost, I have one prac left before I am a qualified teacher. Pregnancy and disillusionment with the
got in the way of me completing this degree. Queensland
Will I study more? Of course! What next who knows. Any recommendations?
