    Cheaper than $2500 for 20 hours?! Where???

    I didn't take any classes for years because absolutely anywhere I found was several hundred per credit hour, and $900-1200 for a single class. It would be years and years to just break even that way, so not worth it. Last year my teammate and I found a place that has entire 3 credit courses for something like $360 so we went for it. I'm very interested to hear what these "many cheaper alternatives" are.

    For 20 hours that doesn't sound too bad. I would do it but also my job would reimburse me part it.

    Off the top of my head - schoolology.com, and Dominican Univ offers an online, design your own class project over the summer.
    May not be a lot cheaper, but I don’t recall seeing a mention of 20 hours.

    I said I was moving from +20 to +40. That's 20 hours.

    I think it’s an unwritten rule now that everyone has access to email and everyone should respond. But I have to agree when I leave the building if it’s not a crisis, emergency, your job depends on it message, I really don’t wanna have to deal with that. If it’s a life or death/building lockdown-don’t try to set up your room early situation, pick up the phone and call me. That’s. how I feel.

    My school only calls if it’s important-class list question, classroom readiness update. Doesn't bother me. Let it go to voicemail if you are bothered by such calls.

    This seems like you are on the auto message list that typically goes out to parents. Call the school and inquire if you can opt out of these.
