Hi everyone! I know that I have not posted in a LONG, LONG time (more than two months – yikes!) and I am sorry – and have definitely missed blogging. I have realized since coming back to university for my final semester that I grossly underestimated how busy these final four months of my degree would be!
This is just a quick little post to say hello again and to ensure that I am, indeed, still on my journey to becoming a teacher. I really enjoyed a few weeks of rest and relaxation during Christmas break (and, in true teacher form, spent holidays recovering from a nasty cold that stuck around much too long) and have jumped back into action in this final semester. I am taking a full slate of classes as well as working as a Resident Assistant at the U of R one last time. I have also been doing some volunteering and lots and lots of job applications and interviews, not to mention some well-deserved catch up time with my friends and fellow colleagues coming back from their internships. It truly inspires me to talk to fellow future educators and hear about all of the wonderful things they did in their 4 months in the classroom – I have high hopes for a bright Saskatchewan education future in these capable professionals’ hands!
It is really starting to sink in that my degree is almost complete and that I will be a “real” teacher very soon! I am excited to begin a career that has been on the horizon as long as I can remember, but am also trying to soak up the perks of student life while I still can, although it is hard to do after being in a school and with students every day.
In preparation for job interviews, most of my online efforts have gone into polishing my professional online portfolio, which you are welcome to check out here. I hope to post more on here in the future, so stay tuned.
Until next time,
