Okay I finally found some internet access basically out in the middle of no where.
The computer Gods are obviously on my side today. Yippie!
So I'm here...
with ALL these people
These rednecks are my family.. (they actually aren't real rednecks but on the 4th of July we are) We do a family float trip every year on the Current River since before I was born.
This year we have talked a lot about teaching. There are several retired teachers in my family and these people did not influence me whatsoever in my choice to teach. I do always like to hear this opinions on things though. For example, My great uncle, Joe, told me if I wanted to go anywhere in life I should become an administrator. I however at this point in my career don't even know my lesson plans for the first day of school therefore I have no desire whatsoever to even think about becoming an administrator. He also expressed his opinion about how women shouldn't even be administrators but I should be because I will make a lot of money.
Which now leads to an important question I need to ask you..
Did you choose to teach because of that fatty check you will receive once a month?
How many of you are saving
Hate to say I knew it. We aren't in this profession if we think we are going to make it big. I'm starting to realize that my dream car (Lexus RX) might not arrive my first paycheck (Or ever for that matter) and that my closet will never be lined with Christian Louboutin but I love my job and my life so I'm okay with that!
And to anyone that chose to be a teacher because they plan on making some cash money- I would like to make this face at you..
on a lighter note I bought fabtastic flash cards! They are triangle flash cards for multiplication and division. TA DA:
So you get with a partner and decide if you want to make them multiply or divide..then you tell them the problem and they provide you with the answer which will be the number on the third point of the triangle.. (DUH right?) SO I would say: 72 and 8.. The student must mentally know they need to divide and then provide the correct answer of 9!
You can buy similar ones here:
You may be able to find them cheaper but that was what I found on google search. You can also make them! Thats what my host teacher did. But I suffer from first year teacher syndrome and love to buy new things that I can't afford! Its so fun!!
