End of a School Year and Planning for Next!

Only one week left of this school year. Wow! It really went fast. It's hard to believe that this time last year, I was looking for a job and wondering what I was going to be doing for the "rest of my life." I am so glad I found Cornerstone Tutorial Center. I have really enjoyed tutoring there. The staff are super nice. My students are awesome, and I probably learned as much as the kids did! It was really fun!

In Biology, I learned that girls like to dissect as much as, or even more than, the boys! That was a surprise. In composition and marketing class, I learned that teens are super creative. I was so impressed with their stories and marketing projects. I also learned that you have to give them a limit on story writing. Some of my students wrote novels instead of a short story!

I will make some changes next year . . . No cell phones in class! I thought I could keep them under control, but not with all the kids. Next year, they will go in a basket when they enter the classroom. Lesson learned!

This summer, I'm going to take a couple of classes related to teaching elementary students in order to prepare for next year. I'm going to tutor some younger kids in some fun classes, as well as continuing with my teens.

In addition to preparing for the next school year, taking classes, and writing articles, I'll be tutoring a few students during the summer. I better get to work!
