Well, I moved into a campus apartment this past weekend and I love it! I can’t imagine ever living in a dorm again. My apartment is my home now. It is cozy (very small), but I have a main room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Oh, and a porch too! I have it decorated with hand me down furniture and lots of things that represent me. My favorite thing? My bookcase that is filled with books. For a college student, I have so many books and I love it.
I began my 3rd education class this semester and I am taking an education class concerning technology. As I was sitting in the orientation last week, it suddenly hit me — I’m going to teach one day. As a matter of fact, I’ll be doing observation hours this semester at a local high school! Wow. This is quite nifty, but shocking to think about. I just created a PortaPortal for my first assignment and it was awesome! 2 years from now, I’ll be student teaching.
But then comes the question concerning graduate school. After I receive my B.A. in history with licensure, will I go straight into teaching? Or will I go to grad school? My dream graduate school is Duke University. Why not shoot for the stars? The future will happen as it is supposed to, so I shouldn’t worry about it. But, it was exciting to realize that I’m going to teach high school history one day just like my surrogate grandfather.
I am so thrilled.
