After Institute

I’m sitting in Newark once again, an hour early for a brunch at what is touted to be an excellent Halal Soul Food place?  Looking forward to some real food.  I had a crazy and bizarre afternoon/night that (temporarily) wiped the memory of Institute from the surface of my brain, but it’s back.  I thought…

Well, it’s 6:30 on a Friday, and what else would I be doing but sitting in a Barnes and Noble and thinking about Teach For America? It has most assuredly been what I can only describe as a bizarre week.  While (after reading other blogs) I can say it was not the most negative 2011…

The first 2 days of Induction

Welcome back to my wonderful world of procrastination!  I’ll be your host this evening. Actually, while I am procrastinating, I really also want to legitimately write down some of what I’m feeling so that I remember in the months and the years to come.  Which is not to say that you should get your hopes…

Placement, Induction … Life

So, all y’all have really clever post titles, blog titles, blurbs, basically (it seems) lives in general and I’m feeling a little less than capable compared to all of the brilliant folks here.  So thanks for making me feel inadequate, beautiful TFU bloggers I figured I would update TFA hopefuls out there (and my family–…

Voluntary Segregation?

I don’t know if you have heard about this, but I was wondering what you all thought about it.  To summarize, there’s a school in Pennsylvania that for a short period of time each day, offers what it calls “mentoring” that is separated by race, gender, and language.  It’s being termed by some “voluntary segregation.”…

I decided to force myself to post here as a break from my thesis.  Right now, I have just woken up from a three hour nap that was the first time I slept in two days.  I have been horrifically sick, and so to take advantage of that I have only been eating these granola…

The big post-Praxis update

First I wanted to take a quick serious second to register my sadness at the tragedy that’s befallen Japan and the ongoing crisis.  I encourage everyone to donate to a group like the Red Cross and help show international support for a human cause. That said. I have SO much to cover!  In the interest…

Praxis II Spanish: World Language

Welp, this is a bit late to help much of anyone this time around, but I figure that a) since it’s a new test, and b) since it’s a requirement for at least the future NJ Spanish teachers/TFA CMs teaching Spanish in lots of places out there, I would give my impressions of the test. …

Teach For…Shenanigans?

Before I start, I’d like to note that if I have to change my password every time I try and log in here (because I’m an ijit that doesn’t remember her password, but only for this one site), I’m going to be very grumpy at myself. That being said, it’s time to update the larger…

It hasn’t been all that long since I’ve updated, but I am enthusiastically avoiding reading and organizing my thesis (though I AM excited that it recently was accepted into the Nation Conference of Undergraduate Research!), and I thought it would be nice to update the larger world out there on the post-acceptance process.  There’s SO…
