As of about 6:30 yesterday evening, the Spring semester of 2009 is over. All that is left to do is wait for the grades to be posted, which should be by next Tuesday. My SPED 401 final should be the last final I will ever take in my undergraduate career (I’m assuming that a four day summer class will not involve a final, but I can’t be sure until I start the class). All that is left is the four day summer class, student teaching, and the student teaching seminar. The seminar should only meet about 7 times during the semester, so that shouldn’t be too terrible.
I’m trying to work out a time to meet with my cooperating teacher for next semester. I’d like to get a chance to see the school and have some idea of what I’m getting into. One of my placements is an early learning center, with about 400 students all aged 7 or under. That could be a bit of a test for me, but I’m looking forward to it anyways.
I’ve got some plans for the next couple of weeks before I leave for Seattle. I’d like to get the house a little more organized than it is, give it a good, although belated spring cleaning. I would also like to get some knitting done. I have been neglecting my hobbies in the craziness of this semester, only finishing a couple pairs of socks since finishing my Christmas knitting. I have the current cardigan and a pair of socks on the needles. I think I’m also going to cast on for Sheldon the Turtle today. I would like to have one finished to take out to Sophie when I go.
I’ve also decided, instead of creating a second blog to write about my student teaching experiences, I’m going to combine it with this blog. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to write one blog about, well, about nothing in particular, and write another about something.
