Of Course I do

The last four weeks have been real crazy in my life. I am in the block at SUU. I am going to be an Elementary Education teacher. The block is the semester right before student teaching and my schedule is very rigorous. I am at South Elementary for 8 hrs a week in third grade and then all of the other days I have classes. I have a Math, Social Studies, Science, Language Arts, and a Management class. There is a lot of work that is due each week in all of these three hour classes. How am I handling it?? For the most part good, but I have my days where I almost have a melt down.

I have been asked so do you still want to be a teacher??? Of course I do. I have ever since I can remember wanted to be a teacher. I want to hopefully make a difference in children's lives. I really love the eight hours a week that I am in third grade. They are so fun. I have had many opportunities to teach and it has been great. I hope that this dream that I have put off until my family was a little older will really come true. I think education is the greatest thing and it makes you feel so young. I come home feeling like I am a 20 yr old until I look in the mirror and then I am brought back to my senses.

This week they brought us all of our graduation papers to fill out. That was kind of exciting, I guess it means it is getting closer. Thanks to all of you that are concerned and very supportive. I always can use friends on many of my days. If any of you have questions, should I go back to school, "Do it". I don't think you will regret it.

BEST of luck to you as your graduate and enter your own classroom. I also applaud you for going back and you might find that it is better that you waited. I think if I had done it later in life, it would have worked out better for me. :)

And thanks for your super nice comment. :)

I am so happy for you! But I must say I just don't know if I could do it. I think I will do my own preschool forever so I don't have to go back to school. Well that is how I feel right now. We will see how I feel when my kids have their own lives and I feel the void of not being needed. Well congrats sis I am so proud of you. You will be the best teacher ever.
