Tanya has been thinking of going back to school and becoming a teacher ever since even before she finished at the University of Utah. She has been applying like crazy to places in Hawaii and we have been playing the waiting game since January. This week she had phone interviews at University of Hawaii, Hawaii Pacific University, and BYU-Hawaii. On Friday during her interview with BYU-Hawaii they loved her and immediately accepted her! The decision has been made and she is going to become a BYU-Hawaii Seasider!
She'll be starting classes July 22nd (the day after we fly there) and is going to study to be a middle or high school health teacher. They already have her student teaching at a middle school set up Kaneohe, which she'll be doing from January to June of next year. Then she'll be certified and ready to teach her own class by next fall!
And our house is so close to the campus that all she'll need is a beach cruiser to get to class every day!
I'm so proud of Tanya. She has worked really hard for this and I know that it's the right thing for her. We just can't wait to get there and get going!
