Books I Haven't Read

**Just a reminder that this blog is moving to mrscomethunter.wordpress.com - update your bookmarks!**

I've never really gotten in to reading classic literature. Once in a while I'll give it a go, but usually end up getting annoyed with the language or pace. I buy them from time to time because I feel like I SHOULD read them, but they often end up back on the shelf.

I've done this with Great Expectations, The Great Gatsby, A Tale of Two Cities, among others.

I was at the dollar store today, and they had a bunch of classics for $1.25. So, I did it again, and picked up a copy of Little Women.

I can hear all the gasps of horror through the computer - "how can you call yourself a reader and have never read LITTLE WOMEN???"

Funny enough, when I got home, I checked our shelves, and sure enough there is a copy of this book already there. Clearly, I've tried this before.

The one I bought is really short though, so maybe it's a kids version or something? Maybe that will help ;)

What books haven't you read that people would be surprised about?

Last Day of Classes!

**just a reminder that this blog is moving to mrscomethunter.wordpress.com - update your bookmarks and feeds! I'll cross-post for a while**
Today is my last day of classes of my BEd program! It's hard to believe how far I've come and how much things have changed since the first anxiety-inducing days back at the end of August.
I really didn't think I was going to pull through, but with the support of friends, family, and awesome colleagues at school, it turned into an amazing experience. I've learned more about myself through this process - like that I hold my morals deeply, I am willing to stand up for myself, that my confidence in myself has grown, and I truly do love teaching AND the students too.
Though classes are done, the program is not! I have my second practicum starting next week, and I'll be in three math classes (two grade 9 and one grade 12) - you can read more about that on my other blog! After that, we do a two-week volunteer stint, and I'll be working at the school board office developing much needed inquiry-based astronomy resources for the board!
Super excited for these next steps, to finish, and to (hopefully) get out into the classroom!!! Stay tuned!
