Biggest Reasons to be a Teacher!

Hey!

So, I have successfully completed a whole year of teaching this past May and I can say teaching has it's high moments and it's low moments, but looking back, the good definitely out weighed the bad. So I'm going to list my top biggest reasons to be a teacher and the biggest advantages of being a teacher in this post. So, if you are a teacher, a student, or thinking of being a teacher, this post is for you. If you are none of those, this post is still for you because we've all had teachers, right?

So starting at number 5...
5. One reason to be a teacher is the benefits. 

Teachers have access to some pretty solid benefits. At least in my experience there is a wide variety and there are pretty good, comparable to some other professions. Additionally, depending on the state and school district, you might have a build in retirement that you can set up and have once you retire. 

4. You get plenty of vacation time off. 

Obviously one huge advantage and reason to be a teacher is the holidays off. Generally when students have holidays and days off, teachers do to. Plus the whole summer off...yes please!


3. If you have a passion for a particular subject, you can specialize and teach others about that subject. 

I teach Spanish, and since I was in middle school and first took an introductory language class, I knew that I wanted to continue with language. I wanted to study French at first, but ended up taking Spanish instead because my sister was taking Spanish. (I did end up taking French in high school, along with continuing Spanish.) I then majored in Spanish in college and the rest was history. Now I teach something I love to my students. Win-win!

2. The opportunity to have fun. 

Teachers can have fun at their job with their students. I know this won't be every teacher, but making learning fun for students is something every teacher can do. Teaching itself is fun!

1. Making a positive impact on students and inspiring the next generation. 

This is the biggest take-away for me. I want to inspire students. I want to get student enthusiastic about learning Spanish. Most teachers I've meet share that same sentiment. They want to best for students and want to have a positive impact on students. 

Alright, that's all for know. Are there any other benefits to being a teacher? Comment below.

Thanks!

Review of Colourpop Garden Variety Palette

Many makeup brands have been going crazy with so many new makeup release and today I'm giving my quick opinion on the newish Colourpop Garden Variety palette. Since this palette released a few weeks ago, Colourpop has already released two other collections, so I'm a little behind, but I wanted to share my opinion on the Garden Variety palette since I actually bought this palette myself and wanted to review it. So let's get into my opinion and quick review: First some.... Basic Information: Price - $20 Pans - 15 eyeshadows Formulas - mattes, metallics, and Colourpop's super shock formula Net Weight - 17g (.6 oz) Shades: neutrals, oranges, corals, golds, purples, greens, and browns My Opinion: Quality - The quality is the usual quality for Colourpop. Colourpop is one of my favorite brands and has a very good formula. On top of being affordable, they also have a very good formula. This palette is no exception, it has a good formula and I had no issues blending the shadows.

Million Yen Women - Japanese Drama Review

Hey! In this post I'm going to be reviewing a Japanese Drama called Million Yen Women, that I watched on Netflix. First a little background. One of my favorite things to do is watch TV. I love finding a good show and binge watching. I started watching Asian dramas my sophomore year of college and since then I've been hooked. I've watched dramas from Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan, Philippines, and India. Now I don't exclusively like shows from these Asian countries, I still watch American shows as well, but I do find myself binge watching these more often because they are usually one season with anywhere between 10-30 episodes. Short and to the point. Now there are shows that are longer but generally that is the episode range. In addition, I also watch telenovelas occasionally, but let's save that for another post. Through my blog I want to review and recommend some TV shows that I truly enjoyed and I hope you will too! Anyway lets get

Teaching During A World-Wide Pandemic

Hello! So today I just wanted to come on here and write about how teaching is going so far, as I've been back to work for a few weeks now and teaching digitally, as well as in-person. Firstly, let me give some background. At my particular school and in my particular county we were expected to be all digital this year, but that quickly changed when it was announced that students could have the option to come back into the school. Of course, this arose to many different feels, opinions, fears, and worries from teachers and parents alike. In the end, at my school, our students have the option to learn digitally or to come in-person and we have about a 50/50 split as of right now.  My position is also uniquely different at the elementary level since I teach Spanish and it's a connection class. So, I teach every student in the school. I a group of classes grades K-5 for 45 minutes for a week, and them they rotate and I see the next group. As you can imagine, that's even scarier
