So I just decided it was time to get a blog because pretty much everybody else has one and I enjoy looking at them. So my first post I thought I should talk about my knew career this year.............Teaching 7th grade!!! I love it! I just graduated from B.Y.U in August of 2008 and I took a job at Fort Herriman Middle School teaching 7th grade Utah Studies. I work with amazing people and the school is only 4 years old so it's nice and new. The kids have a lot of energy but they are overall very good and very fun to work with. They leave me with a lot of funny stories everyday. For example...........this week I had the students correct a short quiz. I kept looking at one of my "known-to-be-off-task" students because he was writing on his hand. Since I always call him out I tried to be suttle and said "I don't want you to do anything else but correcting your quizzes!" This didn't stop him, so I finally went over there and stopped everything to ask him what he thought he was doing, he then told me that he didn't have a peice of paper to write the quiz on, so he used his hand! He had 10 answers all over his hand! And that is how the majority of my sweet little 7th graders minds process. He didn't think through how he was going to turn in the assignment (he wasn't to fond of the idea of chopping his hand off) but by darn he was going to write that quiz down somewhere even if it meant sacrificing his hand to be completely overtaken by black ink! Anyway, my first year of teaching has been very adventurous and I have really enjoyed the experience!
My dad had to teach my niece Halle her roots. She is petting the horses in our field, she liked them 'til they got too close! You can see my dad thinks it's pretty fun to watch her get nervous. She love's grandpa's animals though! She kept reaching for him all day to take her outside!
This guy is amazing! My awesome friend got me a ticket to see him perform at the KBUL studio, there were only about 30 of us there and I sat front and center and his voice was amazing! Watch for him, he is an up and coming country singer and he rocks!!! And if you can see he gave me a personalized autograph and it TOTALLY made my day! Whew! I was star struck!
