Well can you believe it.. I have officially completed my 3rd year of Education! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone, how much I have learnt, and how much I have grown this year. Thanks to some fabulous instructors, a strong support system of friends and family, and an entertaining group of Kindergarten students I can say that I am well on my way to become the best teacher I can be. As I look back on the year, I cant help but to smile as I think of the fun I had along that way. I think that is one of the most important things I will walk away with, learning can be fun and when engage in it with a safe and supportive classroom community it becomes memorable.
I have decided to keep this blog over the summer and into my internship to share personal reflections and realizations from my journey with you. I have to admit that when we were first given the assignment of creating a blog I was very hesitant. I didn’t know how I felt about relieving myself to such a large audience, but this experience has only helped me to grow and celebrate my learning. That is largely in part to three very special people. Erin, thank you for being a friend who understands me personally and professionally, I am going to miss you like crazy girl! Julie, thank you for inspiring me to challenge myself as a professional and opening my eyes to so many joys of this amazing career path, I have truly found a mentor in you! And last but certainly not least, Audrey. Thank you for reading and engaging with me through my blog, I never felt like I was writing to no one as I knew I could count on you!
I am going to try and blog as often as I can this summer!
