More school

So, I changed my whole schedule around and I'm taking a bunch of freshman classes that I should have taken 2 years ago. All of them fill requirements for both GE and Elem Ed... and all of them have fatty expensive books. As far as the whole teaching thing: I have toyed with the idea of being a teacher for... well.... 5 or 6 years, probably. It's the one thing I keep going back to after all my major changes. If I were teaching, it'd be 5th-8th grade... some age where they're older and not as... hmm... well, I don't want to do daycare, and High schoolers are too set in their ways, so I'm shooting for middle school or late elementary (ya know, the easily influenced ones...) The biggest thing is that I've decided that I want to finish my degree in 2 years so Frik can start going to school. After all, he is the one who wants to go and I can't keep holding him up... I'll only have to make enough for rent and food (and entertainment stuff) since his tuition is paid for by his father (and an incredibly understanding university...) So the teachers having low salaries won't be a huge issue. Especially after he graduates. :o)

So...You know what movie I love? Mona Lisa Smile. I think it makes a lot of sense. If you haven't seen it, you should. And I love the characters. Especially the skank. :o)


  1. I'd take late elementary way before I'd go for middle school. It's always nice when they still respect your authority

  2. It's something I keep going back to, somewheres in my mind, but then I remember, I suck at explaining things to kids. I'd totally teach high school. I can't stand young kids, and I have some pretty cool friends online who're young, but still listen when I babble on about how to live.

    Still, I'm aging!

  3. Hold on man, you tell people how to live?

  4. What can I say, I was raised to be a devout (Utah) Mormon! (pun intended)

    But seriously, kids these days are given more than their share of mixed messages. I know I made mistakes, and when I see somebody headed towards the icebergs I hit, and they are willing to listen to me, yeah, I'll talk to them.

    But mostly these people are my online buddies - I'm kind of a big deal here - people know me.
