WOW! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! INCREDIBLE! NO WAY!
ITS MY LAST SEMESTER AT JUDSON
I GRADUATE IN DECEMBER...
Moving in for the last time was both exciting and sad. I can’t believe that in December I will have completed my undergraduate degree. CRAZY! It seems like I just moved into the dorms for the first time. I am very excited to graduate, but when my time at Judson is over I will definitely miss my friends here.
I moved into the dorms early this year because I am student teaching this semester. I will have 9th grade and 11th grade students during my first field placement and hopefully seniors during my second field placement. It will be great to be in the high school classroom all day. But that means that I have to be an ADULT all day. I have to actually lead a classroom filled with students. It makes me a bit nervous, but I know that I can do it.
It was hard to come back to school after this summer. I spent so much of my time traveling, it felt like I never had the opportunity to rest. My mom and I went on a road trip. We visited about 18 states during our vacation. I got to see the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and some many other cool places.
I also got to be a part of two mission trips. I went to Moldova, where I led VBS and taught English, and to Kentucky for a building trip. In Kentucky I actually got to hang dry wall all by myself. How cool is that? ME, Hang dry wall... ALONE? It was hard work but I enjoyed every minute of it.
Both of these experiences helped me to grow in my faith and as a person. I learned how to truly be a leader and how to BOLDLY share my faith. I encountered people from a variety of faith backgrounds and learned how to approach each of them in a way that allowed them to open up.
The summer was WONDERFUL, but now it is OVER...
I expect this semester to be my best yet at Judson. I know that many memories will be made many pictures will be taken and many lasts will take place. And the exciting part is that you will be there to experience them, too.
For the Love of Mother Judson, Anne Kirtley, and Sandra Fowler!
