It's been a couple months since I finished my last extended term sub posting and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised as to a) how much I enjoyed being in the elementary school and b) how much I learned. Indeed the experience was very much humbling and I saw my work there as … Continue reading Week 12, Day 60: Elementary? + Next Steps
Today was my first real day as the Library Media Specialist at an elementary school. Two weeks ago, I started a bit early because the librarian I was to be covering for went into labor early. Then we went on break and today was my first day. Today was also the first time I ever … Continue reading Week 1 Day 1: Imposter Syndrome
I know, I neglected this blog since leaving Culver, and I haven't shared about the amazing things that have happened since. From attending Tufts University and finding the most amazing school to work at, to finding a church and a fellowship community that has changed my life. I hope to write more, I hope to … Continue reading Haven’t written in a while!
Wow, I feel bad for not updating this blog for a long time. I guess, on the one hand it's good that I'm busy in both school and my classes (school meaning student teaching versus classes meaning Tufts). On the other, I did hope to write more and be consistent with my writing. Every week … Continue reading Week 5-7: It’s been a while…
I've been thinking about writing this post for a while. It's been so much fun teaching and working with students, and through these experiences, I've learned a great deal. Some are from my classes and the readings that I've been engaging in, but also just the experiences I've had in the classroom. I want to … Continue reading Hidden Curriculum (1): Things I’ve Learned/Experienced So Far
I don't know if this is going to be a series, like a weekly thing from my last teaching position, or just something that I write when I have the chance. I do know that if my first week was any indication of how it will be for the future, then I'm always going to … Continue reading Week of 9/3 (First Days of Schools)
Today officially marks my eighth day in Boston. This post is not so much of introspective deep contemplation but rather just rambling and a collection of thoughts. I don't know why but I feel it's appropriate in some form to express some thoughts as I actually begin classes and even begin going to my school … Continue reading T-Minus Day 1
It's now been adequate time since I left Culver and I've been thinking about writing a retrospective on my experience there. Personally, I felt like I grew a great deal mentally and spiritually during the six weeks and have had my life permanently changed as a result of my short tenure at Culver. I am … Continue reading Culver Summer School & Camps Retrospective 2017
Today is Sunday (in Vienna), thus I'm due for another week retrospective. Last week being my last week at Culver, meant that it was both busy and exciting at the same time. This will be a shorter post than most, as I will dedicate most of my time to writing the entire summer general retrospective … Continue reading Week 6 Done! Last Week Retrospective
This week was essentially tech/hell week. With only a couple days left before our opening next Wednesday, the days have been filled with getting work done to get the show ready. With being tech/hell week, I finished my lighting focus as well as finished writing light cues today (Saturday). It's been a tiring and stressful … Continue reading Week 5 Done! One more to Go!
