A call for Mentor-ship from a 1st year teacher.
I just graduated in May 2015 with my Masters in Early Childhood Education
A degree upon my hand, questions, reality slapping me left and right…
Is this a dream, did the wind really whispered in my ears?
Did I just hear, you are not done learning!
Is that true, I thought I was, or I hope I did!
Wow, grad school was such a journey
Where do I go from here?
How can I continue to expand my knowledge on Early childhood education?
At home, no way! Being home takes me back to the reality of the other me
Who is that person? The first in the family to graduate with a Masters
The one that made her grandmother in heaven proud
I immigrated to this country when I was four
Too sheltered in my own community and family
I need to expand my resources
I need more knowledge of the world that is so vast
I need more of more, or anything
To help, yes to help my future students
I need to be prepare, I need support
Yes, support! I need to leave that comfort zone
Elvira is time to wake up and take matters into your own hands
Everything is right in front of you
You must reach out for help
Learning never ends after grad school
Open your eyes, take advantage
Don’t leave all this learning behind
Technology is the key to that open door
Teachers, teachers past and present
Please come to my rescue
Mentor me, guide me!
I am a new teacher who wants to be prepare to the maximum
What are some of your best practice?
Any advice for me?
