8 Signs You Are A Future Educator

To be a future educator means that you are a special breed. Your life is learning, collaboration, and constant clinical hours. You work over hours and make yourself completely selfless. You are constantly analyzing lessons and teaching strategies. You basically live in a classroom. However, we love it. We have a passion for children. We have a passion for education because we know it can be the greatest tool and gift a child ever receives. Here are some signs that you are a future educator.

1.You find yourself wanting to teach random people all of the time.

If you see someone struggling, especially a child or teenager you feel as though it is your duty to help them. You don't hesitate to rush to their side and to explain a concept using pedagogy and all of the research-based strategies you work with every day.

2.You have a weird passion for school supplies.

When it comes to school supplies you can't get enough. You could spend hours in the school supplies aisle and you will come up with any excuse to try and go buy some more. You are basically prepared for anything when it comes to school.

3.You have your thoughts on just about all Education Acts ad laws.

You do your research and you know what you support or do not support. You are passionate about education legislation because you know that it will not only affect you but also your students.

4.Sometimes you send more time with children than adults.

A lot of days you work with kids and when you finally get back around adults you have to switch your kid voice off and your adult voice on. You are pretty used to be completely surrounded by children and you think it is the greatest.

5.You know that amazing feeling when you finally have a breakthrough with a student.

We all can relate to that feeling when we finally find a way to explain a concept to a student that makes the light bulb go off.

6.Sometimes you forget to turn the teacher part of you off when you leave the classroom.

Sometimes you find yourself correcting your friends or practicing your classroom rules out in the real world. Turning the teacher part off is very difficult and sometimes embarrassing but hey it is what we do.

7.Everything you see can be turned into a lesson.

Oh you see snowmen at the store? Those could be used for a characterization activity in the classroom. Yous see a video? How could you incorporate that into your lesson? Basically, you start to see everything as a learning resource.

8.You cannot wait to inspire lives of young people and dedicate yourself to the betterment of the future.

You want to help those in need. You want to change lives for the better. You want to make a difference in the lives of every student you meet. You want to be the inspirational aspect that changes the path of a student forever. You want to be the reason that a student reaches their full potential.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
