updates...

So, student teaching got pretty crazy... and I decided I had too much to worry about without adding blogging to the list.  I'm feeling more relaxed now, though, so I thought I'd pick it up again :)

I'm halfway done with my practicum!  My minor is Teaching English as a Second Language, and I have to do a practicum (like a mini, much more stress-free student teaching) in order to finish.  At first I was assigned to a school an hour away from home, but when the lady in charge found out where I lived, she graciously reassigned me to a school twelve minutes from our house.  Awesome!  And it's worked out pretty perfectly.  It's a little different from what I'm used to - it's a summer school program, so it's more relaxed + the program is two 3-week blocks, so starting tomorrow, I have a new mentor teacher and a brand new batch of kids - but I've really enjoyed it.  Almost every student is there because he/she failed during the normal school year, so I expected them to be a little rough around the edges, but they're pretty endearing :)

So in exactly three weeks, I'll be ready to officially graduate!  Woohoo!
