I am going through PreSenioritis, also known as Oh-dear-God-in-heaven-save-me-I'm-a-Junior- going-into-my-last-quarter-of-being-a-junior Syndrome. This is characterized by flop-sweats, indecisiveness, excessive college brochure delivery, stress, overwhelming feeling, and binge drinking (in some cases). You will be happy to know that I have skipped the binge drinking.
I am currently weighing the options for how I want to spend my Senior year at good ol' mold-infested MVHS. Thankfully, neither of my choices include being at the high school for a full day. Here's my dilemma-
- Choice A: KCCC Teacher Academy- An awesome program that allows me to get out of MVHS around noon each day, go to the academy, and learn to be a teacher. You pick two age levels that you are interested in teaching (I am firmly against teaching anything above 2nd grade, but could probably learn to live with middle school social studies if I had to) and then the last time around, you can go back to one that you liked, or do something new. You spend a few days in the classroom and a few at a school observing and student teaching.
- Choice B: COTC- I can go to college and possibly get my freshman year out of the way.
- Choice C: I can possibly do both.
- A: decide if I want to be a teacher, and I earn one college credit along the way; my best friend, Rachel, just got accepted 3 weeks ago.
- B: I get my freshman year out of the way; it's free
- C:All of the above.
- A: I honestly don't know if I want to be a teacher. I'm just juggling the idea right now.
- B: I don't know what I want to go to school for. I'm torn between Early Childhood Education (would probably end up transferring to another school and specializing in Preschool-Kindergarten education, and minoring in Theater) and Business (I would get my certification as a Wedding Coordinator after graduating)
- C: All of the above, plus the idea that I would have to take college in the evenings, meaning less time to get a job, do homework, etc.
