Being Finished with my Student Teaching or Going to the David Archuleta Concert?

I can't decide if I am more excited that I am finished with my student teaching or that I just went to the David Archuleta concert last night.

I just finished my student teaching on Tuesday! My students were so cute, they all made me a card and a huge poster. They had a surprise party for me too. I really enjoyed student teaching, but it is nice to be done. Here is a picture of my students. I have better pictures of their faces, but I'm probably not suppose to display them on the Internet. I think this picture is probably okay..don't you think.

So, I only have two more weeks of school left and I only go on Wednesday nights. Basically I only have 8 hours of school left before I graduate. Sounds great huh....well actually I have a huge senior project due and a portfolio of all of my main assignments that I have done in the past two years. So far my senior projects 32 pages long and I probably have 15 to go. Some of those pages are worksheets, but a lot of them are lessons and reflections. It will be nice when it's all over with. I guess when I'm finished with that I will have something else to worry about like interviews and actually teaching. I hope to get a teaching position this fall in Alpine School District.

Kory and I went to the David Archuleta concert last night. We are not really concert goers, but when I heard that David Archuleta was coming to town I couldn't resist (and neither could Kory). I just think he is the cutest little thing and he is such a good singer. So.. when we walked into the E-Center we instantly became surrounded by thousands of 12 year old girls who probably are capable of screaming louder than any other age group in the world. His concert was really good!I can't wait to go to the next one.

By the way....don't let Kory tell you that he HAD to take me to a David Archuleta concert, because he loved every minute of it. You should have seen the smile on his face when David came out!

I have some good video footage but I can't get it to upload. Sorry. Oh, and I saw my good friend Sharmaine at the concert too!

A 35 page project with 15 to go. That sounds insane. I am so excited for you though!!! What a great feeling it will be to be done.

Congrats on completing student teaching and almost being ready to graduate!!!
I am sure you and Kory fit right in with all the 12 year old girls at the concert. Okay maybe Kory didn't blend in quite as well. Just kidding. Sounds like a fun time. I can't remember the last time we went to a concert that wasn't classical. I'm jealous! Oh wait- we got to see Celine Dion when we lived in Vegas. Phew - we aren't total losers after all!

Nothing is better than being done with college!!! I made up a parent permission slip for my class blog. I post pictures, and do not use the last name. I think I'm the only one in the world who has never watched American Idol---but my old visiting teaching partner and the ones we visited were all up on it, so I didn't miss a beat. I did, however, tune in to the final part of the show when David Cook won. I like Dancing with the Stars!

That would have been fun to go to. And congrats on being so close to finishing school. Graduation day will be here before you know it!

Mike and Katie said...

you guys are so lucky! I totally wish I would have gotten tickets!

Brian and Julie said...

Brian's quite jealous that Kory got to see David Archuleta. Maybe we can go on a tour across the country following the American Idol concert this summer. That would be better than Philadelphia?
