Today I was accepted to Azusa Pacific University's Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program.
Teaching high school art for a year has confirmed my love for teaching but I long for deeper conversations and students who crave learning. The MFA will enable me to teach college in the future and develop my practice now.
The program begins in less than two months, on July 5. I go for three weeks every July and one weekend each January for four years. So we won't have to move. I just get a nice California vacation every 6 months.
