A high school math teacher. Mixing one of the most under-appreciated jobs in America (teaching) with one of the most hated subjects (mathematics). Why the heck am I becoming one? ::shrugs:: Probably because...
1. I was always good at math
2. I was always able to help others
3. I like the objectivity behind mathematics
4. I like the ability to prove things using logic and reasoning
5. While I won't be making a huge salary, the long-term benefits aren't terrible and I like the job security
6. I like being able to make a difference in hundreds of kids' lives
7. The laws and teachings of mathematics are ubiquitously found in our universe and in our lives
But anyway, I just graduated Rutgers University in May with a bachelor's in mathematics... I'm now at Rutgers's Graduate School of Education as a grad student, and I'll be getting my master's degree in mathematics education at the end of this school year.
Right now I'm student teaching (algebra and geometry), and I'm already exhausted after each school day ends. I come home from the high school at around 3:30, and can barely make it to the Day Daily (assuming I've finished grading papers and preparing my lesson plans for the next day). I'm asleep by around 11:30 every night, because I need to be up by 6 AM every morning. I pretty much have no time to play SC2, except for weekends. Clearly, this is a problem. But alas, this is the future I have chosen; I just need to get my teaching stuff done faster so that I can have more time to rest and play SC2!
The most important thing is that my students love me, they're learning, and that they're eager to learn
EDIT: I totally just got the Dragoon icon <3 Yay TL!
