the future ..
This semester at school I am learning about the basics of working with elementary school children! For those of you who don't know, Children are AMAZING! I love them! I also am looking into becoming a elementary school teacher. As I'm sure some of you have felt in the past, or are feeling, you sometimes doubt whether your dream is really going to end up being as spectacular as you want it to be! And, that was mostly definitely the position I was in! I know I love kids, I know I'd love to work with them, I'm organized and patient.. but is teaching actually my calling? So now that I've been in my placement classroom maybe a dozen times, I know this is what God has called me to do. When I'm working with the children, it puts a smile on my face when that light bulb finally turns on and they understand their math homework, or social studies assignment! I've also realized I feel fairly comfortable talking in front of the whole class, and even teaching a lesson as I did the other day! I am in this class till February, and I'm looking forward to every minute of working with the kids, and my supervising teacher! The teacher I'm working with, says she has lots up her sleeve to challenge me, so I can see the potential I have! :) exciting stuff !!
