Looking for Work

So as our school year comes to an end I am faced with the daunting task of looking for a summer job.  The problem is I have a summer job teaching a creative arts camp for kids.  Great!  The only problem is summer camps obviously don’t start till July because kids are in school till then, okay make sense but as a University student that finishes school beginning of April what am I to do for money for May and June?  Student jobs with the government run all summer and I definitely want to work at these summer camps because teaching is my passion so I have a dilemma.  What do I do?  Who wants to pay me to do some work for them in May and June?  Come on anyone?

Racist American UCLA Girl

I am having a hard time forgetting about the UCLA girl and what she said and posted to everyone.  I showed it to a friend and he said, “sometimes stupid people just deserve what they get.”  I think this is totally true.  I know that we had talked about the internet not having the ability to forgive but this girl took  the time to film her rant and made the decision to post it on the World Wide Web key word World Wide.

I think that younger generations that grew up with technology forget how public this forum is and she maybe thought of few of her friends would see this and laugh but now she is kicked out of University and UCLA may suffer from this rant as well.

I think that people need to be held accountable for what they do.  I realize that I wouldn’t want my entire University life posted to the public I did some things that I am not proud of but I would have never posted them on the internet, maybe I just think ahead more.

Though this provides a dilemma because I don’t like censorship so I believe that she has the right to say anything she wants even if I don’t agree I guess she just may have to deal with the consequence.  Hmm I am at odds here.  Thoughts????

tech task 9

As I prepare for my internship I am stuck daily as to where I want to teach.  I love the young kids like k-3 I have so much fun with them and I feel like I am good at teaching them.  I have lots of experience with children aged 3-8 mostly.  I am pre-interning in a high school now and maybe it is just this semester or the co-op teacher I have but I also love these kids they will try anything and they are very open to new things and we can have real conversations.  So where do I go who do I teach?  I know I don’t have an interest in teaching middle years but k-3 and high school really interest me.  I hope that wherever my internship takes me I will learn lots and be happy with my placement.

Tech task 8

Here is my expenses spread sheet.  Alexis


March is going to be and already is a crazy month.  I wonder why all education classes have to have things do on the same day or week?  I know there is mid-term and end of term but why can’t we have a few assignments throughout the semester instead of two huge projects.  Also education is all about group projects which are great but they take just that extra time to organize and complete especially when you have group members who don’t really contribute.  Well thats all for today because I have 9 million things to do.  Ahhhh!  Thoughts?
