Another semester completed

Between working full time in corporate America, going to graduate school and squeezing in class observations I haven't been very diligent with my blog. I barely survived Chanukah. Now it's almost Christmas and I have been busy preparing for the annual festivities. I completed my high school observations earlier this month. I am still firm in my resolve to teach regardless of my observation experience. I met so many wonderful students who truly want to learn and continue on to college. I know now, more than ever, that I belong in the classroom. My current employer will begin layoffs at the beginning of the 2010. I am relieved at the prospect of saying goodbye to my current job. The money has been good and I will admit my salary has kept me here longer than I truly wanted. Being able to pay bills and having money left over for the occasional vacation is very seductive. But now it's time to work at something that fulfills me and hopefully makes a difference in someone's life. I have one more year of classes. I am scheduled to student teach in the Spring of 2011 when I graduate. I am so happy. I can't wait!
