16 Signs You're An Education Major

Yes, I'm going to be a teacher. No, I'm not in it for the money.

16 Signs You're An Education Major
Daily Genius

1. "Twirl 'til you Hurl" becomes a part of your daily vocabulary.

Does this bring back nightmares from Lit Block? *Casually spins finger in the air*

2. Your diet consist of Coffee, coffee, and more coffee.

We really need a starbucks near campus...amirite?

3. Children's books are at the top of your Christmas Wish List.

Gotta build that classroom library one way or another.

4. We have all been there at least once during Lit Block.

Enough Said.

5. Each semester ends with a giant potluck.

The most challenging part of potlucks is remembering who made which dish—I just don't trust some people, if you know what I am saying.

6. Sticky Notes have taken over your life.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

7. You have mastered highlighting the most important part of your notes.

Who am I kidding. We really just wait for the teacher to tell us what will be on the test, then we underline, star, highlight, and do everything we possibly can to try and remember to study that part.

8. If you have fought back tears when talking about chocolate.

If you have ever taken Mrs. Clont's class, you know exactly what I am talking about.

9. A lesson plan is not complete unless it's at least 10 pages long.

No, I am not exaggerating.

10. You refer to your cooperating teacher's class as your students.

We all do it whether you admit it or not.

11. Pinterest is the most used app on your phone.

If you are in the education program and you do not have a Pinterest account, you are doing life all wrong.

12. Acronyms are the new Pig Latin.

Acronyms really are a teachers best friend, especially on test day.

13. When you've accepted the fact that grades will be posted weeks after submission.

I understand you have 80 research papers to grade, but I am still going to be impatient and ask you every day if you have graded my paper yet.

14. Learning to use LiveText is more challenging then solving a Rubik's Cube.

I am a senior in college, and I still do not know how to use LiveText properly. I imagine this is how my grandma feels trying to send a text message.

15. It is you're, not your.

We try our best not to correct everyone's grammar, but sometimes we just can't help ourselves. For goodness sake, you have to learn the proper way to use "your" and "you're." If you need an example, please see the picture below.

16. And last but not least. When someone sits in your "unassigned" seat.

It is just a known fact that you better get a good seat on the first day of school, because this is where you will be sitting the rest of the year. No, it's not an assigned seat, but people will become very frustrated with you if you mix things up.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
