I am still getting used to this new way of blogging so bear with me! Sorry for the lack of entries in the past month, it’s been insanely busy and I was waiting to be sure that all of you lovely readers could see this blog!
First and foremost CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ACCEPTED STUDENTS OF THE CLASS OF 2013!!! A special shout out has to go to the students I interviewed who got in, I was excited to see each and every one of your names on the list. Admissions has a fantastic night when the Senior Interviewers call all the accepted students they interviewed to congratulate them and answer questions they may have. Most people had around 10-12 students….I had 21! Luckily Jim in admissions made us all delicious baked goods so I got to take bites between calls and it was wonderful to hear from everyone again. The Open House this Sunday should be fun and hopefully lots of people come, it is really a great opportunity to see the school.
As I mentioned, the past weeks have been busy though not necessarily with school work. Instead, I have had to put a lot of time and effort into my future plans after graduation (the idea of sitting in my room crying can only go so far). I was accepted into the Providence Alliance of Catholic Teachers (PACT) program as well as the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) and after much deliberation and thought I decided to go with PACT. Through this program I will be earning a free Masters in Education degree from Providence College while teaching in a Catholic School for two years. I am really excited, I can’t wait to teach! I think it didn’t really hit me until I had my first interview at St. Mary’s high school in Westfield; as we walked down the hall the principal pointed to a classroom and said “that could be yours next year”. Seeing the physical room sent me into a state of shock, excitement and nervousness…but all in a good way. I will keep you posted as to how the job search ends up!
In addition to future planning, I am still swamped with CAB work. Spring Weekend is right around the corner (this year’s theme is Springelodeon) and fireworks, game shows, the big concert with Lupe Fiasco, and the Carnival are all on the agenda. It should be a great time and a lot of pictures will be taken, get ready!
