THERE IS TOO MUCH TO DO!
It is getting there!
at the bottom the this post are two pretty photos. these photos were taken and edited about three months ago. i have been growing in my photography lately and my editing have been undergoing some changes lately. i think it is because a friend said that my photos look like istock photos. a.k.a too generic. not cool. but thank you friend for the comment.
so here is the lesson for those who are becoming teachers. just because you have an awesome lesson for your students, please do not be afraid to change it up a little. i believe that the OCEAN guidelines (five personality traits) says that openness for teachers are scored low. i think that is horrible! this is why this career is staying still. yes, technology can improve but it is us who also needs to have an innovating mind set. that is my rant for the day. click on the link for more information on OCEAN. yes it is wikipedia, but lets be honest, besides google, you use it for everything.
an answer i do not know. not surprising because while one is on the journey to gain wisdom, the wise thing to do is to understand that one does not know everything.
i would consider myself as a fashionista. so today, i was around town wearing a high waist floral print shorts and a loose crop top. the crop top was hanging over my shoulders and some might say it looks loosy goosy. so as a feature teacher, do we have to modify our outfits? because when i am not at the schools, i wear clothing that might show a little skin and is not always school friendly, hence the reason why i do not wear it for my internship. (i work at urban outfitters, this should help you understand my fashion sense a little more). the reason why i draw up this question is because i am hoping to live close to the school i am teaching at and will be seen in the community. another way of asking the question would be, if you have a sleeve of tattoos on your arm, would you still cover the tattoos after the school day ends? if you have to modify something for work, should you modify it outside of work? because as teachers, we are role models. questions questions questions!
gloomy day here in tampa, florida. but nothing a hot tea and a cute baby can’t cure. the best thing about being a teacher in training is that you learn how to make kids like you but you also can give them back to their mommies and daddies. i am not going to lie though, this baby is perfect and it was hard to give her back!
mandy nicole, teacher in training. I want to quit! Why? Because children are scary. I am an elementary education major in tampa, florida. this semester, i am taking seventeen credits, in a middle of my level one internship, and i have two jobs. Perhaps that is the reason why i want to quit. But that is besides the case.
so for the heck of this post, my age is twenty-two years old. sometimes i think i am thirty who is stuck in a twenty-two years old body. it has always been like this. i have always surrounded myself with those who are much older than me. perhaps it is because i am an only child and growing up, i was mostly surrounded by adults. so moving on.
i have changed my major in school three times. yes! three times! i entered college as a nursing major, then changed it to public relations, and not i am a proud but tired elementary education student. fun! the consequence of trying to figure out what i wanted to do for the rest of my life caused me to be two years behind.
today i had a horrible day. i have personal issues and it is hard to turn these emotional feelings off no matter what i am doing. not only did i have these thoughts in my mind, in the classroom, the ace c died, i was wearing a sweater, and my kids were letting the temperature influence their behaviors. their behaviors were not the best today. no matter what i did, i could not let my personal life go! but that is okay, i had a light bulb day.
what scares me is that education majors graduate at the age of twenty one! i am sorry to tell you this, but we do not have experience! i feel like our age group are prone to heart breaks, easily to get distracted, and thinks life sucks. we have responsibilities for the first time. when they say things happens for a reason. i think i realized the reason for not finishing school on time. i do not think i would be able to survive being a teacher at the age of twenty two because there are some things i have not learned that would help me survive the teaching world. this does not make me immature, it is just lack of experience.
this is my observation. as young feature teachers or those who are young teachers now need to understand that we too need to grow just like our kids. that is okay. with this little gain of wisdom, i feel like next time, i will be able to keep my personal sadness out of the classroom. so two things. we are young. it sucks but understanding will only help you with your attitude. and the clique, things happens for a reason.
promise my post are not going to be this long. this is important.
