I forgot to post about it yesterday
Well, yesterday was the first day of school for me. The dental assisting class is all women. Even the instructers are women. The classes are actually not held at the school, instead they are held at a dentist's office. You get hands on experience and actually get to work with patients. The dentist has actually hired people before they even graduated. So they said that first impressions are very important. They look for positions that open up in dental offices and try and get the students hired so that they can have more hands on experience. There are some single moms in the class trying to make it so they can make a life for them and their kid(s). There are women in their 30's who are sick of trying to make ends meet at their current job. And 1 student just graduated and knew what she wanted to do and went right for it. There are 15 women in the class and they are all pretty friendly. We start the first chapter today and will be using flash cards. I'm really excited about this I think it's something I'll do great in. And since first impressions are important...pray that I make a great one!
