So close to the end.....

So Im just about 6 school days from the end of my placement, and trust me...it cant come soon enough.

I find that im a lot grouchier doing this placement....im not getting along with the teacher all that well, as she is a control freak, and has a tough time letting go of having to dominate every aspect of the classroom. She offers no direction, and very little suggestion. Which doesnt help if I have no clue what im doing. And when I find that i ask her for a suggestion, she only says "good luck with that"....

She is also very sarcastic, which I can appreciate....except she's mean about being sarcastic. So, besides all of that, and only having 6 days of that classroom left, Im very excited about moving on.

I have had a lot of time to think about whether or not I would want to teach after this....but a few things have come up.

Im not a fan of having such a fixed schedule....its a little odd, becuase im not used to it. And having summers off is starting to look less appealing....I like being able to take time off when ever I want to. Im missing a lot of fun things that my friends are doing, that I would rather do....However, I know that I have to get through all of this so that I can travel.....I just need a break.....im too grouchy lately.

You do need a vacation. You've been working too hard.

Stick to teaching. I don't know why, but I think you should stick to it. Travel during the summer.

I agree with BB, you would have 2 months off to go wherever you want. How cool is that? Most people have to scrounge up a month.

Ahhhh you are almost out of the clutches of the evil placement that makes you unhappy. Freedom is so close you can almost taste it. Time to think is good. It's a big decision.

Yeah, working a real job (rather a non-teaching job) means you barely get a vacation. My brother only gets about three weeks a year, and as I work part time I can't afford to really take a vacation ever. I'm taking off three days next week and that's going to really kill my budget. If you don't like teaching, well then that's one thing, but if you are complaining you can't take off more regularly, well - I don't know what your freinds are doing - but where I come from that is (an unfortunate) fact of living.
