My essential goal is to be an Early Childhood teacher by the year 2015. A year after I graduate, I hope to find a job in a warmer state. I would like to be teaching in a Kindergarten or first grade classroom.
Long term Goals
My long term goal is to graduate in Spring 2015. I hope to have a few recommendations from the sites that I will student teach at.
After I graduate, I want to apply for graduate school to continue my education, so I can be educated in special needs as well. I know learning how to teach special needs well give me a better chance at getting hired.
During the summer after I graduate, I want to look for a job in an elementary school setting. In any interviews I get I plan on letting them know, I am working towards my masters in special needs.
Short Term Goals
My short term goal is to get better grades and study harder.I plan on asking mentors and professors for help if I do not understand anything to achieve my goal of better grades. Also, my goal is to not procrastinate.
Another short term goal is to take and pass my Praxis exams with the highest score I can get. I plan on retaking them if I do not do so well the first time.
I pinterest things I find online for my future class. Things such as lesson plans, crafts, and setting up the classroom. My short term goal is to have some ideas of how I want to teach so I will be ready when the time comes.
