January was a complete roller-coaster. The beginning of a new semester of college made me super giddy and excited. I was taking Nutrition, Human Sexuality, Intro to teaching, Analysis of Argument, and my personal favorite, theater. I found out shortly that these classes were not as fun as people said they would be. Human sexuality was full of TMI (too much information), some days I would leave feeling sick to my stomach and I almost still fear my own anatomy! I can honestly say that I did not learn more than 10 things in my nutrition class, and my argument class was a joke because if you know me, I am not much of an arguer. Theater was really fun though and I left that class knowing everyone in my class by name. Intro to teaching was pretty painful but we were required to observe and teach in a classroom for 18 hours. I decided to ask my neighbor who teaches 4th grade if I could do my assignment in her class. I have always believed that I was not a kid person. If they weren't very closely related to me then I didn't like them. But those 10 short weeks that I spent with that 4th grade class made me realize how special kids are and what great potential they have in life. They are all so different and full of life, I just felt amazing everyday I got to see them. I still don't know if 4th grade is for me but I know that it is definitely an option that would be full of excitement and challenge!
