I had an absolutely amazing summer. In addition to working at the daycare back home that I have been working at for the past three summers, I got the opportunity to go on a trip of a lifetime on Messiah’s May-Term Cross Cultural to Germany. Despite not knowing anyone on the trip and speaking zero German, I had a great time, met the most amazing people, and experienced things I never thought I would. Being able to travel is one of my favorite things and this trip was definitely one of my favorites. If any Messiah student is able to go on a Cross Cultural, I would definitely recommend it. Once I got back to the states, I then got to work at the daycare. I honestly loved every minute of it. Being here is also making me miss all of my children and co-workers. I was also able to spend a great deal of time with friends and take short trips to Pittsburgh and Washington DC to visit.
It is crazy to me that I am now a senior at Messiah. Three years ago I had just moved on to campus and had no idea what to expect. While I have had some good and bad times throughout my three years so far, I am so excited to be starting my last year here. This year is sure to bring with it numerous challenges as well as exciting times, since I will be completed my student teaching experiences: Morning preschool in the lab school for this semester and full day public school teaching in the spring. Because of this I am sorry to say that my blogging might be slightly more scarce than in the past, but I will try my best and I guarantee you that I will have fun stories to write about.
