Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Even though we have a lot going on in our family, and we have a wake and funeral to attend this week, we all went to school like normal today. For me, it was an important day as it was my last student teaching observation.
It is incredible to think that just five short months ago, I was walking into my first day of student teaching, unsure of what to expect, and nervous about what kind of impression I would make. Now here we are, the beginning of May, and I only have a week of student teaching remaining. My supervisor told me that I have grown a lot over the past few months, and that I've done a really good job with all that student teaching has thrown at me.
I was glad to see that I improved in all areas of my observation, and my lesson went really well. Even though I have another week to be in the classroom, it just felt like this huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders today because I know I won't have to feel nervous about an observation again.
It was actually quite fitting that today was my last observation because I realized that it was also the last day of classes for my fellow senior friends. The nice thing about student teaching, however, is that I don't have finals to study for now! I'd hate to be in my friends' shoes!
I'm looking forward to the last week of student teaching and my last week of college. Wish me luck!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
