I know life can't always stay the same, and I know I can't stay an instructional aide forever. I want to be a teacher, and the only way I can finish up school is by leaving my position. Not only that, I want to be done with school, so I can actually get a FT job and move on in life in general. When I first started working at my school, the principal talked about how everyone at the school is like a family. I've found myself a part of an amazing family and I am a little scared to leave a school that has become like a home. Kind of like leaving my real home to go to college for the first time, it was scary - yet, I knew it was something I had to do in order to get where I wanted to be. Whatever school I student teach at will give me new experiences and I have no doubt about that. I know I've been blessed to work at a very nice school with an overwhelming amount of support from teacher and parents. I know that can't be found at every school - so I'll just see where I end up. That's all I can do, right? Whether my experience is just as good, better, or worse than my experience at the school I've been working at ....I know I will learn what I need to in order to do my best for my future students.
Here's to 2 fabulous years at one school and a memorable experience for the future!
