So I am an elementary education I shouldn't be freaked out by having to do a 20min lesson right? Think Again. I am freaked the heck out! I LOVE kids and teaching/ helping them like I did at the preschool last term. I know that I love teaching, though I don't have a full grasp of how yet. My biggest fear is that I screw this project up and get told that I just don't have it in me to be a teacher. Honestly, I think I would cry. More then anything I want this; I have the patience and the passion. My fear is that I don't have the skills. I know as I said in my last post: live one day at a time, but I'm still a little worried about this because I know this assignment is coming up soon. I know I can talk in front of a class, but it still is a nerve recking thing especially if it is my peers. To me teaching them is scarier then any kindergartner because these guys will have no trouble knowing if I am wrong or realizing my mistakes. Regardless I have to do this to become a teacher and I will get through it...some how I will no matter how nervous I maybe. Practice makes perfect I guess. In other news I start my fieldwork at one of the schools in town on Monday. I am kinda excited to be working with kids again mixed with a little nerves because I don't know what to expect. Here's Hoping it all goes well!

Balancing Act

And on the tight rope we have the lovely, sorry couldn't help myself. Here I am once again trying to balance so many things at once and I see some friends struggling. The truth is that I feel their pain and I am struggling too, I am just good at hiding it. I realize I am not super woman, but I have to stay, as much as I can, on top of things, not to mention I have to take it one day at a time. I can't think too hard about the future because you never know what will happen and you have to live and do things for the moment. I spend time working out and socializing on the weekends for me and I work for class and my sorority on the week days. Life is stressful and I know I am going from early morning to mid afternoon most days that working out to my favorite songs or watching TV helps me just breath. You can't let life bog you down and make you feel overwhelmed because then you will never really live. I feel like I am juggling more then I ever did in high school, even though I don't participate so much in a bunch of clubs like I did back then. Yet, I am gaining more from what I do with school, work, sorority, preschool and just having fun. I have the hard task of having to balance all these things and though it first seemed impossible when I was a freshmen here I feel like this term I am getting it right...I just need to keep it up. Here's Hoping!
