I just got back from my final ECS 110 class, and, I have to say, I am really sad! That class has taught me SO SO SO much! Part of the reason I found this class such a surprise was that everyone I had ever talked to said that ECS 110 was very dry and boring compared to the fun field experience aspect of ECS 100. However, my professor was such an amazingly inspiring lady that I feel like I learned 3 times as much in her class – not that I didn’t enjoy ECS 100, I just feel like this class was the first time that I really stepped back and looked at myself as a future teacher in a critical way.
There are now only 3 more classes between me and… final writing. But after that, I am home free for the summer and have to say that, while I absolutely loved my first year of university, I am really excited to head out of the big city and back into my small town with no stop lights (which my roommate found shocking – haha).
I am thiiiiiiis close to being 1/4 done my degree (CRAZY!) and while I feel like I have learned and grown a huge amount, I also feel like I have a long way to go (I used to think that 4 more years of school seemed like a long time, but now I am amazed that they can squeeze the basics of being a teacher into only 4 years!) I am already so excited to see what comes next! 🙂
