So… this is my first post in this blog. I’ve never really been good at consistently posting in these types of things, but I figured I’d give it a try again.
I just took my only final for the semester and am therefore all done with school. It’s weird not being a student anymore, because now I am going to be a teacher. I’ve been in college for five years now, so it’ll be a little strange transitioning into being at the front of the classroom rather than just sitting in the back. I’m getting a bit nervous for institute. I finished all of my pre-institute work already so I can study for the MCAT before institute starts. I worry sometimes that my students won’t take me seriously and that it is going to be very overwhelming. I’m also very nervous about being a grown up and making grown up decisions without my parents. I just bought a new car and have to start making payments on those. My dad won’t be paying my rent anymore Scary! I am excited though about moving back up north (Connecticut) so I can be with my friends from high school some more. It should be a lot of fun. I know all of this will lead to a very rewarding experience that is definitely out of my comfort zone. I am looking forward to learning more about myself and becoming an “adult.”
Here’s to becoming a secondary math teacher in CT
