Not dance related, but.....

I just had to announced that after five years of university, I will officially be finished my Bachelor of Education program tomorrow!!! :) I received my BA (four year arts degree) in English and Psychology last year, and was in a CRAZY intensive program this year. Graduation is in July, and I will be applying for certification when marks come in, and then I will be an elementary teacher!!

And of course, I will now be an elementary teacher who is pumped about getting back into dancing! I feel a bit lost now that I'm not a student but someone looking for work, but I feel like my Dad would be so proud of me if he were here, and I am very proud of myself for pushing on in spite of losing him during my second year of my BA when I was 18. I'm now hoping to start tutoring at a local, well-respected facility (after a summer off of course!!), and also get back into teaching dance and dancing myself. My goal is to get to prelim (two more firsts left!), and go to the 2011 Oireachtas. During this year I'm also hoping to visit my sponsor child in India! Then I'd love to teach in Australia the year after this! :)

Anywho....this is very long, and kind of my whole life story, but even though it wasn't Irish dance related, per say, I still wanted to share. What can I say......I'm a dreamer! :)

Huge congratulations! I also just finished up earning certification, so I know the intense amount of time and effort required. Also, I know the sacrifices in time away from dance it takes. I hope that your job prospects are better than they are here in the states, and that you find a job soon!

Well, there are over 500 people on the supply list here in my district, and they went from hiring 76 new teachers to hiring 26 new teachers this past year. So job prospects aren't good, but I want to take a year "off" anyways, and just tutor a few days a week, dance and travel. One day at a time is my motto that has gotten me this far, so I'll keep saying it! :)
