Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Everything went back to normal today with the first day back to school. As much as I didn't want to wake up when my alarm went off this morning, it was kind of good to be forced into being a responsible, fully-functioning human being again.
Going into "Miss Krigsman" mode at school kind of pushed me into being more awake and alert than I would have been if I had just been attending my own college classes. It's funny how you can be completely out of it and not caring when you just have yourself to worry about, but as soon as you have even the tiniest responsibility for a group of kids, you are completely on the ball at all times.
There's just a week until I'm observed for the first time in this student teaching placement, which is crazy considering that I just taught my first kindergarten lesson today. But I'm ready and excited because I'll have an observation almost every week and a half, which will bring me right up to my final week of student teaching. Then May 12th is the last day of student teaching, and May 17th is graduation day! With just a little more than a month to go, graduation is starting to feel so real! I can't believe it! I have a friend who has been getting letters back from grad schools (so proud... She got accepted into an amazing school yesterday!!) and I'm getting more information to be able to apply for a job after we move (I'm taking a year off before my Master's to gain residency in the state)... It seems like we're all suddenly growing up and really becoming adults!
And with that, adults need to know when it's time to get to bed... Have to be at school early for a faculty meeting tomorrow! That sounds so official, doesn't it?!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
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.
