15 Signs You Are An Education Major

Yes, we can "do" but we still wanna teach.

15 Signs You Are An Education Major

In college there are so many career paths you can take. Every major has some kind of stigma with both good and bad stereotypes that go along with it. For us education majors, some of those stereotypes are a little stronger. I have decided that there are two types of people in this world, the people that will say, "Wow that is so great," when you tell them you are studying to be a teacher and the people that will physically cringe. For whatever reason people feel the way they feel, myself (and every other education major) have heard probably every response in the book about their chosen career path. Along with that, here are some other signs that you know you're an education major.

1. You wave at every child you walk by on the street because you truly believe that wave could change their life.

2. You are convinced that you read the same three articles in a never-ending cycle (inclusion, differentiation, classroom management, repeat).

3. You physically break a sweat arguing about standardized testing with anyone and everyone.

4. There are three boys in the whole department so on that off chance you have male contact during the day you're the most awkward human alive.

5. Your Pinterest profile has at least 3 different boards dedicated to classroom decorations and you add to it everyday even though you have a solid two and a half years until you graduate.

6. You have a designated section of your closet for "teacher clothes" and everything looks like it was made in 1930 (seriously, have you ever seen teacher shoes? Scary).

7. You watch all the kids movies that come out. By yourself.

8. You have to convince yourself on a daily basis that money doesn't matter and that you'll be fine.

9. But you've already started scouting out the business school to see which guy will probably end up the most successful.

10. Every time someone tells you are taking the "easy way out" you start plotting their inevitable demise.

11. Seriously, stop telling us that "those who can't do, teach."

12. To you, the first day of school is better than Christmas.

13. And shopping for school supplies is your favorite pastime.

14. Even though people tell you that it won't be easy and that it'll be hard to find a job, you don't care.

15. Because you know that you'll be happy and successful and that's all that matters.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
