so, in this yucky economy jobs for college students (especially those with crazy class schedules) are few and far between. since it is absolutely ridiculous to have bills and no job, i signed up to be a substitute teacher. so far, so good. i love being a teacher -- it isn't really like a job to me.
though there are not a ton of opportunities to substitute, i've gotten a few great jobs. most of them are actually in elementary schools! i'm a secondary education major and plan on teaching in junior high, yet sometimes those sweet elementary school kids make me ponder what it would be like to teach in elementary education.
i know i have changed my major way too many times. it's just something i think about when i get to substitute for elementary schools. more than that, these opportunities take me back in memory to my own elementary school years. that was quite a while ago.
speaking of... my five-year high school reunion is in less than a month. should i go?! my first gut-response is, "no! there is no way i'm going." yet part of me wonders what it will be like. i have changed so very much since high school, so that means everyone probably has. well, something to think about!
anyway, it was fun to sub for a fifth grade class today. they were wonderful and reminded me why i'm still in school. and i can always use reminders about that!
