    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Time Flies!

Wow.  I cannot even believe that today is already Wednesday and marks the halfway point of my last full time week of student teaching!  I am almost done aside from 3 short weeks of observing and less than full time, and then its on to organizing the portfolio and preparing for interviews at the job fair on April 15th.  That should be an incredible experience in and of itself.  The job fair will be going on at the Minneapolis Convention Center and over 100 organizations will be represented for us to meet and chat about perspective job opportunities in the education field.  I am both anxious and excited for that day to come around, but until then, I have a lot of prep work to do!  I have to still go through my resume to double check all of my criteria and information is accurate, as well as scan my transcript for any errors over the last 4 years of my schooling.  I have to try to nail down some letters of recommendation and references, as well, to ensure that I have contacts for my prospective employers.  It is quite the task to tackle (along with student teaching, especially!).  However, lucky for me and the other student teachers, Scholastica has a great hiring rate for teaching and the majority of their teachers get a job right out of college.  I’m hoping that that data extends to our graduating class, too!
