As an honor student at city College I was invited to attend a two week session for students who are interested in pursuing a career in education. In addition, after completion of the course, it counts as, “teacher credits”.
I wasn’t all the way sure about becoming a teacher but I did want to visit this university.
All of us candidates boarded the charter bus and headed to the very large university campus that was an hour and a half to two hours away.
When we arrived, we got our own rooms and a tour of the campus. This campus was so big that you have to take a bus to class.
I also met some cool kids on campus. We played a couple rounds on multiplayer and I hit their bong and then headed back to my room because I have to study.
In class, I met a really cool instructor who doesn’t seem much older. Boy is her name familiar. Just like that politician from the B2K show from back in high school.
I shyly asked her about this and it was true. Next, she explains about the courses that I will need and the credits required for an education degree. She even outlined some of the incentives for coming to this university.
In addition, I had other courses involving which age groups that I would like to teach. Early childhood, secondary, post secondary. I am not into little kids so I start seriously considering post secondary which would mean graduate school.
This is a lot to think about but, my aunt is always going on about how underpaid that she is. I would really have to Love this to make such a sacrifice!
