You can make room in your busy schedule

To say your life is busy is probably the understatement. You’re in a classroom all day, teaching and caring for your students. Then your nights and weekends are taken up by cleaning, curriculum planning, and family obligations. Finding room in a busy schedule can be hard, but it is possible. The good news is at Ashworth College you can finish your program in as little as four months. Plus, since classes are online they’re easier to fit into your schedule because you can study when it works best for you.

You’ve made a budget

Paying for school is something a lot of people worry about. In addition to living expenses, other bills, and groceries, you’re probably throwing a little money toward your classroom to get new project supplies and materials for whatever fun thing you’re planning for your students. That’s why making a budget is a must before deciding to enroll in a certificate. If you’re new to making a budget, find out where to start. Already have one? Add a line for tuition to see if you can afford college now or if you need to wait and save for a few months first. As you look at your budget, remember here at Ashworth we work with you to offer tuition payment options so you can find the right fit for your financial situation.

You love to learn

You love teaching, but you also love to learn. You wouldn’t be in this career if you didn’t. So, embrace your love of learning and enroll in a certificate program. You’ll gain confidence, competence, and a whole lot of knowledge that will help you be a better you every day.
