Well, I’m back and thought I’d update anyone who reads my blog on what’s up. I’m back in school and I’m super excited because I’m teaching at a public high school this semester! And better yet…..drum roll….I’m teaching creative writing!!! Yes, it’s my first chance to take part in and/or lead a high school writing workshop, and I’m so excited! Finally, a chance to teach in an environment I went to school in, and an environment that I ultimately want to teach in on my own. Tomorrow I go to a certification conference mandatory for Baltimore County Public School teaching internships.
Aside from that, I’ll also be doing somewhat of an ESL (English as a Second Language) class on campus for my Spanish class, where I’ll kind of be teaching, but it will be more for my benefit in improving my language ability.
Other good news, I’m going to study abroad this summer! For three weeks, I’ll be teaching in Kenton on Sea, South Africa, fifth and sixth grade students. Do I even need to tell you how exciting this is? If you’ve been reading my blogs, you know how crazy I am about teaching and how much I cannot wait for this to happen.
The students I’ll be going abroad with and I are going to be making a blog about our trip, which I will most definitely put a link up on here once I get it, so anyone can check out my experience, my travels, and my classes, as well as hear from me personally about my experience. If anyone thinks they will definitely be interested in hearing about it, feel free to say so in the comments. I’d be glad to hear from people (cough, cough, altitudechallengedwriter)
Please comment and express your interest (or disinterest, I guess) in hearing about South Africa!
