Because I am such a joiner...

Thirteen Things about Gette

1. My thumbs are double jointed.

2. I like to sing and I don't suck at it. Mostly.

3. I am thisclose to finishing my teaching degree and stuck.

4. It sucks.

5. It is very frustrating to have people ask me "Where are you teaching now?"

6. You don't get paid to student teach.

7. Most people don't know that, or at least they seem very surprised when you tell them.

8. I love to read, but I hate reading aloud.

9. #8 makes me feel like a bad parent.

10. Ironically, my three daughters are excellent readers despite this neglect.

11. My son is only 3, so we'll see how he does.

12. I am giving my notice at my job of 6 years.

13. Its a little bit scary.

    Good luck finishing your degree.. I remember we always used to love our student teachers in school.. they were so much cooler then our regular teachers! LOL

    Great TT. I didn't realize that student teachers didn't get paid. When you mention it, it wasn't that surprising but I guess I'd never really thought about it before. Odd how other apprentice or co-op style degree programs often pay you when you're working and teaching doesn't.

    I am also "this close" to my teaching degree and will probably never be able to go back and finish! It does suck, I can relate.

    Neat way to get to know more about fellow bloggers. Which job are you leaving??
