    I just finished my last semester of classes and will start student teachin in January. I found out who my supervisor is early because she is one of my former professors who i have kept in touch with she has told me my placements and i havent even got any info from the university yet so im excited. The last 4 years have went by so fast but yet so slow all at the same time but it is great I am almost done and about to be looking forward to finding a job.

    On a brighter note my little sister is getting married in 2 days and my brother and his fiance just told me they are having a baby in july so im am super stoked and life is just great right now. Im happy to be so close but so sad to see all my classmates and I part our own ways next semester. we are a cohort so they have all been my school family.
    they will all do well and maybe one day some of us can work together again.:D

    Congrats! Student Teaching will go by soooo quickly! I know now that I am subbing, I feel like I shouldn't be getting paid for what I'm doing because I love being in the classroom...and heck...student teaching we had to pay to be there! :) just lovely!

    Good luck in finding a job - I do suggest that you start looking in January - & get your portfolio/resume/cover letter together NOW. I waited...and didn't have enough energy to do it during student teaching...soo I ended up completing them after graduation - in May - which was after most schools hired for the following year.

    I am going to be student teaching in January also! I can't believe it! I would also love to know what is important to have in your portfolio. I don't think in my district you are allowed to apply before you graduate for a position.

    I am involved in the ATPE organization at my school and they have a whole section online about portfolios and resumes I think would be helpful to you. However, I can't seem to put the link in my reply. If you PM me I will be more than happy to e-mail it to you.

    I too just finished. It goes by VERY quickly. The best advice I can give is ask to teach the subject that you're weakest at the most. Math was always difficult for me, so I decided to teach it a lot and now I enjoy math!

    Good luck!

    I think we have all been in your shoes & many of us our still there. When you have your blissful ignorance taken away following a M/C it makes it difficult not to question everything when you get your next BFP. I know that I sobbed from fear more than happiness when I seen the positive sign. I just couldn't explain to anyone why I was more scared than happy. I can say that it has gotten a little easier as the weeks have advanced. Yet, I also have to say that I have had a difficult time accepting/bonding to this pregnancy. It was a matter of keeping my heart protected I guess. As I have went through milestones I had set up in my mind such as seeing the heartbeat on U/S the first time, hearing the heartbeat with doppler first time, watching the baby flip & move around during U/S, and now starting to feel the baby move, I feel myself accepting & embracing my pregnancy more. I hope you can come to this point in your own time too
