I officially finished my teaching portion of my student teaching time...I now just have two weeks of observations throughout the high school and I am completely done. I have to finish up 5 more assignments of my own that include a teacher portfolio and a work sample of lessons that I prepared. Once I finish all those requirements and my school signs off on everything then I am eligible to apply for my teaching certification through the State of Washington.
I am not done with my Masters degree though...I have until January of next year to finish that. In fact, they expect you to have a job and work on your thesis project while in your classroom!
I am off to Spokane this Tuesday for another Career Fair...hopefully, this time there will be more schools represented and I will feel better once done. A few weeks ago I went to a Career Fair in Ellensburg at Central WA University...not great turnout!
But you know what?
I have never been let down by my God! Even when things look bleakest and the dark is overwhelming...God always pulls me through and answers my prayers! I am a firm believer in FAITH! He will secure the best teaching job for me!
The last day of my student teaching is the start of our school district's Spring Break. So my sister, brother-in-law, all their kids, and I are all heading over to Seattle at the end of the month to meet up with my other sister and her kids and my Mom to play in Seattle for a few days. Seattle has a City Pass which you can buy for $45 and it gets you admission to the Aquarium, an Argosy Cruise, Experience Music Project, the Zoo and the Pacific Science Center with Imax movie!!!
We might not be able to go somewhere exotic, but hey, Seattle can be fun too!! We are going to pack all of it in just a few days, but it will be fun! It will be nice to have a little vacation as well.
My big question?
Will it still be snowing on Spring Break???!!!!
Seriously though...it is mid-March in Seattle and it is still snowing over there...what the heck is up with that!!!
