So this post is being written by a guest blogger who happens to be my boss at work on campus, but also one of my best friends and my second mother. We work in the Humanities Department on campus see helicopter parents a lot. Helicopter parenting is something that is more and more common today, and she’s here to talk about her personal experiences with the subject!
Early Childhood Student Teaching. This is the biggest thing that has been on my mind lately. I am going to Aldine, Texas in January to complete my Early Childhood Student Teaching requirement. While I know that it is a few months away, I am still worried. I am the type of person that likes to have things planned out, and it is driving me crazy because I don’t have any idea what to expect when I am there. I know that it will be a good experience for me, and that everything will work out, but it doesn’t help me worry less now. I’m looking forward to seeing how education is in different parts of the country, and to make comparisons between how education is done between these different areas versus how education is done in Wisconsin. I know that once it gets closer to when I leave for Texas, I will have an idea of what I am doing for lessons while I am there. I just hope that I have enough time to make my lesson plans and have everything ready for my time down there. I want to do the best possible job that I can while I am there, because it is important to me that I always do my best and always look for ways to improve so that I can be the best teacher I can be.
