An Open Letter To My Field Classroom

Thanks for giving me an experience I'll love forever.

Dear Fourth Graders,

Thank you for giving me the best student teaching experience I've had so far. You didn't have to welcome me into your classroom, but you did. You kept track of the days I would show up in your classroom and begged me to quit university classes to spend all day in fourth grade. You greeted me with hugs and left me with hugs. You saved M&M's for me in your sticky hands

Thanks for teaching me how to play your games. I hope I taught you that I'm not the only teacher, but that each of you can be one, too. Your patience, smiles, and answers to my questions were in true teacher style. I hope I taught you that you'll always be a learner. I learned from you everyday. I learned that life may be rough, but that you can still show up and do your best. I learned that second chances are okay. I learned that sometimes you just need a hug and a bit of space and that you'll tell me about what's bothering you if I give you some room.

I hope that I taught you as much as you taught me. Just like you, I wish that I could spend all day everyday in fourth grade. Believe me, you were so much better than university classes! Maybe I'll come back in the future as your teacher, but until then, hugs, smiles, and best wishes are being sent your way!

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.
