I have a lot to do so I saved Poptropica to my favorites. That way I feel like I have accomplished something. I haven't played it yet but Hey! I will. I have to do a take home test and write up a paper about the school board meeting too. I also need to get started on my philosophy of education paper. I won't be letting Mr. Chamberlain read that after his reaction to his wife's! :) I talked to another pre-service teacher at the meeting about passion and my concerns about teaching. She is also someone who is coming into this as a second career. She thinks part of the reason I may not be passionate about it yet is because I am just starting and haven't been in a classroom. I don't know the good or the bad about the way things work so I don't actually know which issues I will feel passionate about yet. Right now I think I will get my AAT and then decide if I want to pursue this or something else. It may help when I do my classroom observation next month. I am going to observe Mrs. Kilby for a few hours too so that may give me another perspective. I am also interested in Social Work and I looked that up at Crowder and may think about that too. I have a few more general requirement classes to take and I think I will do that next semester. That may give me time to re-evaluate. I have to say that I love technology class. I didn't know if I would. No matter what I decide to do it has helped me learn about things I am going to need to know. It has also given me a lot of things to think about and I am grateful for that also....and since Mr. Chamberlain FINALLY remembered to bring his kindle to class, I know what to put on my Christmas list!
