Happy almost end of April! I can’t believe the end of classes is only two and a half weeks away. I’m not ready for the end yet! I can’t wait for summer but I still have so much to get done before my summer can start, I would actually like a few more weeks of class. (Whew, NEVER thought I’d hear myself say that before!)
Can we take a second to discuss how this “spring” weather has been super gross? I am doing my field experience at Mankato West High school and we had a SNOW DAY a few weeks ago. A snow day…. mid-April….. Now, I won’t complain about the day off, but I’m not super okay with there being that much snow in April. I was ready to bust out my shorts and flip flops by the start of February so this has definitely been way too long of a winter. One thing I love about MSU, however, is that almost all the buildings are connected, so with this gross weather I really never have to go outside once I get to campus. Score!
The past few weeks have been filled with lots of studying, work, lesson planning, and teaching. The days are flying by because they are so jam-packed with things to do! I am learning so much by being in the classroom. I know I’ve said this in at least two previous posts… but I cannot wait to become a teacher!! Everyday my love for chemistry teaching grows, I love it! With my field experiences I have started to teach more and more lessons, so I’m becoming so much more comfortable and confident in my abilities as both a chemist and a teacher. (Thank goodness because I don’t know what my back-up plan would have been if I decided I didn’t like chemistry teaching after all… probably a professional fro-yo eater since that’s my second greatest passion in life after teaching..) =)
Well, I’m off to do more lesson planning. Chemistry BINGO reviews for tomorrow, woohoo!! Thanks for reading my blog!
