Hi everyone!  I'm at Radina's with Shannon because both of our spouses are at home doing some secrative Christmas stuff (independently of eachother).  So I'm here reading about how to write a teaching philosophy statement and changing my blog to the beta, which isn't a beta anymore as of today, its the real thing. Newgen is on his way to visit us and tonight we are having game night at Aaron's house. Most likely there will be some playing of the Wii which we got this last friday from Shannon and Nicole, and whcih they got from stuff!
If you didn't know already, I'm done with school AND work for the semester!
So what is new? Well, new to some of you is that my old boss is moving back to Manhattan and applying for the lead teaching job that I am applying for. She is way more qualified than me, but I'm keeping my hopes up. I spent a long time making my resume (or vita, for those of you who switched over to that silly term), and I have to write a letter of interest (is that like a cover letter or is it different?), and a teaching philosophy.
Also, I got promoted at work....there was no position to be promoted to, but they invented it for me! I am the co-lead teacher now! It means I have to work more over the week, which sucks because I have me thesis to do next semester, along with hockey and two other classes...and I don't know if I get paid more (except per hour at the same rate, for sure)...but I am a co-lead teacher. If my old boss gets her job back, I think I'm going to get demoted back to just Graduate teaching assistant. So what do I do different as "Co" that I didn't do before? 1)have the same authority as Laura in the classroom 2) do our staffing (interview, write up schedules, find substitutes, etc) 3) oversee the student teachers in our classroom (write up a syllabus, grade their work, evaluate them, etc) 4)do half all the little things that have to be done. Exciting huh?
So, that.... :D

Done! (for real this time)

I just finished a final that turned out to be 8 pages long (the other girl who already did it had 10 pages, but eh!)

And now I am DONE for the semester!

Next tasks, wrapping presents, applying for the lead teaching job at Stone House by the 14th of July, finishing buying people presents, playing the Wii on Friday, and watching the last episode of Star Trek DS9 (our reward for being done with school). We're going to watch the DS9 now, even though it's already 1:00 in the morning and I have to go into work early, because I want to. :) Yay!

Time off

(read three new posts below, as well)
On an unrelated, but kind of related note, my time stamps on my blog are off by 2 hours. This post is at 3:00 am, not 1:00 am.... jUst thought you should know. I'll try to fix it.

Its alomst over!

Done with the final at 3:00 am exactly. Yah!

Real quick like...

One research proposal down, one final to go...
(and then another final...but at least that one doesn't have to be done tonight)

Done! Or am I?

Yesterday I want to Radina's around 3:30 to work on my paper for Advanced Program Design (I'd already been working on it and had about 8 singe spaced pages). I had to desingn an early childhood program. At 15 til 11:00 I packed up and went home. At 12:45 I finally finished, and Chris (luckily!) offered to read through this 33 page paper for me. It took nearly an hour for both of us to read it at the same time and fix it (LOTS of type-os). And then I submitted it. Yay!

Then, do you know what I did right after that? I opened up a new text file for my Research Proposal which is due Monday at 5 (when the 33 page paper was due) and is also when my final for research methods it due.

So after Monday at 5, all I'll have left is a Final for advanced Program Development.
