[nobe-l] Quietly I introduce myself

What classes are you taking in UCA's History department this semester? Which
professors?  I still have contacts there and some of the professors even
like me!  Has DSS been good at getting you your books in advance?  I had
more or less broken them to my will by the time I completed my Masters, so I
hope they stayed trained.
Does the B.S. program in History require foreign language?  I forget the
detailed difference between it and the B.A., but thought that was it.
Dealing with the Education department there was a trial for a sighted friend
of mine getting her teaching certificate and degree.

I use mostly Yahoo! Messenger and MSN Messenger but it doesn't take much to
get signed up on AIM if you need someone to chat with from time to time.

Where do you go to get your online course for your teaching credential? I'm
currently a student at UCA with a History major. I originally was going to
get my teaching degree but couldn't pass the PRAXIS exam to get into the
education program. So I'm going to get my bachelor of science in history and
minor in business administration at the end of this year (December 2010) and
then work on an online course classes to obtain my teaching degree after I
work on this PRAXIS exam without the stress of doing other school work at
the same time. Why is it hard for me? Well, I'm 47 years old and not 18, 19,
ro 20 like most of my education major classmates where they've been taught
the more recent way of reading, writing, and math. Where I'm still old
school taught. I'm learning but I just need the time to get pass it quicker
and to have a clear head too.

Well I'm interested in your courses and stuff.
