Somehow, I find myself in the last semester of my undergrad career. I wish that I could tell you where all the time went, but whether I am ready to leave The University of Tulsa or not, as I write this, graduation is just 88 short days away. This semester has been different than any other semester because I am student teaching full time. I am currently at Kendall Whittier Elementary school in a second grade classroom. I absolutely love it! Kendall Whittier is right across the street from TU’s campus, I’ve even walked there in the morning instead of taking my car. My typical day looks something like this:
6:15 am: Wake up time! Honestly, I’m still not used to this.
7:15-7:20 am: I arrive at school. Like I mentioned earlier, I have a very easy commute because it is right across from campus. I walked to school last week and had to get up earlier than I wanted, but I had a great view!
7:40 am: We meet all of the students in the gym for their Rise and Shine in the morning assembly where we have announcements, say the Pledge of Allegiance and recite the school’s mission statement or creed.
