Thank you for all the feedback!! Okay, I will answer some of the questions I got in the last post. Yes, I am an education major. I am getting Triple certified, for those of you who don't know what that means, it means that I will be certified in Early Childhood, Elementary Education and Special Education with a concentration in English. In other words, I will be able to educate children from birth to 6th grade, both special and regular ed. I honestly became Triple Cert to be more marketable when I leave college. I knew it would be a lot more work but I was willing to do that if that meant finding a job would be easier after college. It never occurred to be that I would love Early Childhood. Yes, I have always loved younger children too but being a part of a preschool never caught my attention. However, after taking an early childhood class and observing in a preschool, I fell in love with it! They are so full of energy! I honestly can't wait to be a teacher, even if it scares me too. I have always admired the way children view the world and how they actually enjoy learning and expressing themselves, which I believe many people lose with age. And yes, I have taken Praxis1. For those of you who aren't up on teacher lingo, that is the test to be a teacher in most states in the country. I passed all the sections except for math...which I missed by ONE POINT. So I am going to take that part again. I still have to take L.A.S.T which is the test to be a teacher in New York. Since I am not sure where I will be living, I want to cover all my bases.
Also, thank you for the idea to sell some stuff on Craigslist! I am thinking of selling my old prom and homecoming dresses from High School and any other random items I can find.
I will update everyone on Italy related information once I learn more!
And again, thanks for the feedback!
Well, I am off to bed soon. I have an early class in which I am learning how to use technology in classrooms as part of lessons.
