Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today, I finally found out all of the information that I needed in order to become certified to be a teacher. I feel so much better knowing exactly what is required of me for the rest of the year. Now all I need to do is actually follow through with everything!
Between papers, fieldwork, and the drive to and from school, I feel like I’m slowly starting to lose my mind. I don’t know how other people commute for all four years of school. I’ve barely been a commuter for half a semester and I’m already annoyed with it. But I do feel like I have found some clarity after meeting with an academic adviser today, and although it will take a lot of work, I am prepared for what is to come.
There will be tests that I need to take, student teaching is next semester, and I’ll have to record myself teaching a lesson so that I can analyze my performance. And everything is so expensive. I just keep reminding myself that everything will be worth it when I am a teacher at last.
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.
