I remember my Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Miller. I loved going to Kindergarten and even though I felt like I was the odd ball in the classroom and had many mood swings, I still wanted to go. I remember the puppets, story time and the nap time. We used to have mats that we would go and get and even though I may not have actually slept, I remember putting my mat under one of the tables or somewhere dark because even to this day, I still have problems falling asleep in a room with light.
This memory of my own experience in Kindergarten fuels my passion to help others. I want to have that memory for other children. I know that teaching is not what it used to be and accept that children learn alot more than what they are given credit for. As they say "Children are like sponges with education."
So far I have made it through one entire year back in college classes. It was quite the learning process as technology has changed so much since when I graduated back in 2004 from Minot State University. But I feel that at least this time around I am taking things more seriously and have the desire and want to learn the subjects. Chemistry on the other hand, may be my demise. I am taking this class this semester and alot of the information is going right over my head. I may have to be that older student who has to get extra help to understand some of the processes in Chemistry. And I don't feel bad asking for help either! I know this time around being older, that if I don't ask, I'm just going to struggle more.
And off topic...I've noticed that I don't write in here very often...
I will try to change that as this blog helps me with the random thoughts and feelings that are going through my head. It has a calming effect on me even though I may have to keep retyping some words or phrases for correct spelling and grammar.
I do enjoy writing as if I am actually telling a story to someone. Hopefully I can continue and make it more frequent and someday maybe even deal with the more personal and emotional struggles that I deal with. But for now I keep that to myself.
