To My Students In My Internship Classroom

They reinforce what teaching is all about.

To My Students In My Internship Classroom
Skyler Anderson

Entering a classroom as a young college student can be intimidating, it is hard to establish authority.

However, I have been so lucky with my internship students. I am shown an incredible amount of respect. To them I am another teacher, I have an equal value to their other teachers. Even when there is a problem with disrespect, if I address the situation, the student quickly changes their behavior.

Another reason to praise these students is their willingness to work with me. They are always up to try new activities that I find and want to test out. Not only that, they are very understanding and will assist if I mess up or if they think something will work better another way. They love helping me get good grades and are always on their best behavior when they know I am being observed.

In addition to everything else they do for me, they make me feel special on a personal level. Every day, when the students walk in the classroom, they are so excited to see me and I never fail to get one hug. I hear multiple times that they wish I was there every day. On my birthday, the number of cards, hugs, and kind words I received was incredible. When I get down in the dumps with the struggles and paperwork of teaching in school, they keep me going.

I am incredibly blessed to have a class that makes teaching a pleasure and I feel so loved. If only all of my classes can always be like this. My hopes for them are that I have made some sort of impact on them and they will remember the days that I came in and did crazy and fun lessons with them.

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.
