Fourth register for the classes you ... ... middle of paper ... ... and they make up for it. Like for me I like and enjoy painting, art, and teaching along with helping other. So that’s how I found out who I wanted to be and what I wanted to proceed with through collage an art teacher would be great, but is it for me at this moment? Or is there another job that will better suit me> I will never know unless I put my foot forward and try to do what I am good at. Is it a thriving job that I could go gets every day of the week?
I am willing to go wherever my career will take me as long as I love doing it, I can be happy anywhere. I have always loved art and design and love creativity. I’ve taken art since elementary, and have always loved anything that let me be creative. My internship has motivated me towards Graphic Design, teaching me the values I need, showing me I love it and am good at it. Where Am I going?
Chapter 3: (Rhythm/Time)—The Daily Grind I remember transitioning from high school to college and thinking, “Now I will get to do whatever I want. I can eat when I want, play when I want, and make whatever kind of art I want.” I was naïve, of course, and I learned on the very first day of classes that it was going to take a great deal of discipline if I wanted to become an artist. In high school, I was one of a small handful of the “art kids,” the talented ones who could draw, paint, or sculpt, but now I was surrounded by a lot of talented individuals, most of whom were far more talented than I was. I looked at the upper classmen and their work and thought, wow, I’ll never be that good. How can I ever be that good?
As an artist I will be able to work on my craft, but to do so, you must have some skills like being able to draw subjects as near as possible a replica, using pen and ink, pencil, charcoal or any other type of artist media. While skill is in important part of being an artist, a post-secondary education is too, so you can become skilled enough to work your craft in the world. A bachelor’s degree in fine arts is a great way to start. You can get a bachelor’s degree at a regular four-year university or at an art school. Getting your bachelor’s degree at an art school can cost you from $28,000 to $17,800 per year (at SANTA FE University of Art and Design in Santa Fe, New Mexico...
Ever since I was a child I knew teaching was my calling in life. I want to be a teacher because I absolutely love children and I want to be able to make a difference in a child’s life just like some of my teachers have done for me. My ninth grade Spanish teacher, Mrs. Grimm, was the one who influenced me to become a teacher because she made learning so much fun and everyday I couldn’t wait to get to her class. With every lesson she made up a song to go along with it that way when it was time for the test, us students could easily remember the lesson by singing the song. I want to be that kind of teacher where a child looks forward to coming to my classroom.
Then I realized that I wanted to go to further my education. The reason I chose to go to college was that I am an artist, and felt that I needed to learn more about art techniques. I didn’t want to loose my talent, and I realized how much I enjoyed being in class. I had the privilege of being a student of some wonderful teachers at the high school I attended, and they influenced my decision to becoming an art teacher. Teaching is a challenging profession, but also very rewarding.
Sports, one of the things in life that people work hardest for. That work can show a lot about a person and their character. I had the opportunity to prove my character in hockey last year. For me the feeling of your lungs screaming for more air and your legs giving out drove me. It helped me work towards my goal, and that goal was to be the starting goalie on my team.
Starting back when I was in high school I used to think to myself that it would be fun to become a teacher, at the high school level. What I really wanted to do was become a P.E. teacher and play sports all day. But after discussing the idea with my advisor in both high school and college I decided to go into a field that would give me the option of teaching or going into the specific industry of business, so that is what I decided to do. To prepare myself for the high school level I have substitute taught during the summer and Christmas breaks at Woodbridge High School in Northern Virginia, this experience seemed to get me more excited about my future career.
In my class I always knew that I wanted to step up and become a leader for our group. This was my perfect opportunity, so I took it. I could not be happier with my participation as one of the capstone for the Northern Colorado Special Olympics. This opportunity has given me a great insight into planning of events, talking with our community, setting up fundraisers and a great day of working with the amazing students of the special needs programs throughout Poudre School district, as well as Thompson Valley School District. For our classes senior service project we were the second hand men for Julie Edler and the other teachers that have previously put on the Special Olympics event at Fossil Ridge High School.
1st Reflection: The decision to study (or work in) psychology/ behavioural science Reporting: I decided to study psychology/ behavioural science after I took a year off school. In the year off I worked as a Snowboard Instructor. You have to work in close relationship with customers. I realised that while I thoroughly enjoyed working, I was at ease to connect and build a trusting relationship as a teacher with the student. So I decided to study something I had already shown interest in over the years and at the same time had a talent for.
