03:39 pm: Okay so....
Durring spring break, March 2- 13, I must complete 10 hours of observation as part of my 45 hours for becoming a teacher this semester. I must choose 2 different teachers. One, that I have never had before and at a different school. So, I was thinking of going to L'Anse Creuse North (since it is the closest) as my other school. If any one would recomend some teachers (perferably Geography or History... although it doesn't really matter) that you think would be a good choice for me to come and observe, ask questions, interview etc... It would be greatly appreciated.

Also, for my friends at AB, I can choose any teacher, one that I've had or haven't (basicallly anyone). If anyone wants me to come to class and observe and interview you that would be nice. :-D (It's not guaranteed, because it has to be approved by the pincipal and teacher, but most of the teachers don't mind)

Thanks :-D

Yes, this is my first year in college and it's very confusing but basically you have to get 45 hours of observation in a class room (on your own time). Have a certain amount of credit hours for your major and minor... you can double major and all that, but it's very confusing. At CMU, I'm currently taking this class called EDU 107 which is a required class for all aspiring teachers. It teaches you how to handle situations (basically, a common sense class) However, there are videos and stuff we have to watch based on the Michigan law about diseases and such. After that, it is divided into what classes you need to take in order to major and minor in your discipline. It's fairly simple because it is all laid out in a book given by the university. You just have to read it lol :-D

Also, to speed my time up here at college I am taking one or two classes at Macomb durring the summmer because it takes people 4-5 years to become a teacher, but I've heard that it is possible to do in 4 years if you don't fail, and get on the right path for your diciplne right away. So, taking credits that transfer durring the summer is a good way to speed things along.

I hope I didn't confuse you and ramble on too much. :-D
