Friday Two Cents: Proof I Chose The Right Career


Well its official, I have finished my year of teacher’s college and I survived. To reference the ancient Greek texts that recount the 12 Trials of Heracles, now I know what he felt like. I went through hell and back again and it was a trial beyond any other I have undertaken. It truly was a herculean task, but I did it!!!

Yet even though it was full of hard work and trials that would turn the hair of any normal person grey, it was an amazing ride. A small part of me is sad that it is over. A very small part; the part that misses the companionship of my fellow teacher candidates. Or should I say, my colleagues, teachers. But I will also miss the students whom I have grown to cherish for their wonderful honesty and innocence at my practicums. I know that this will be the case for any position I will hopefully get in the future but it’s still hard to not get a little attached.

The highlight of my last day at practicum was when two students gave me cards that they made themselves. The students are in the early primary grades and their honesty and genuine heart-felt sadness at me leaving was very touching. If I ever need any proof why I chose a career in teaching, all I have to do is look at these two cards and all my doubts just melt away.
