I’m not going to lie, I haven’t always wanted to be in education. It wasn’t until I was a sophomore in high school that I realized that education was something I was interested in. It all started when I really started falling in love with French language.
Though my path towards education started early on in my high school years, my first official teaching experience was for students of 15 – 40 years and was one of the best experiences of my life. I have always loved children, especially kindergarten through second grade children, so I was very excited about my position in PAC.
Of course, I was incredibly nervous on my first day of teaching here. First of all, I wasn’t even sure if I was cut out to be a teacher, and second of all, the thought of watching and teaching a bunch of naughty five year olds was overwhelming, to say the least. Nonetheless, my first day in the classroom went better than I expected. My job as their teacher was to teach them the alphabet, how to spell words, and simple math, like counting. Though the learning content was not difficult, coming up with six weeks worth of lesson plans was something that I had never done before. I am more than excited to explore this amazing field that is education with very good ambience and good team of PAC.
