Well, well, well, look at this: summer has started! This means that I start my job as program coordinator at Camp in the Community! What a great job to help me grow as a professional teacher! I feel so amped up and excited for this job because my spring practicum of 2012 has really prepared me. I could remember feeling so excited for my 5 week long practicum- months before! You see, I am in the Bachelor of Education Program at VIU. I just finished my fourth year and will be heading into fifth (and final) year next fall.

I had a lot of trouble starting this post, the leading reason being that I am not that familiar with the blogosphere. So I read up a little on how to go about blogging. Apparently it has to do with being authentic and helping others get to know you. Some talk about it as a creative outlet. Others try to make a profit. But I must admit that I need neither of these and that my entrance into the blogging world makes me wonder a little about how much time many of us spend on the Internet.

God's gentle wooing. God's absolute directives.Tiny lace trim on pastel. Baby dresses. Penecillin. Unclogged sewer systems. Courage to fight the battle. A long shelf life. Rejection-coping skills.
