The school could not be located any further from where I live while still being in the city limits of Regina. Having grown up in a small city, where you can literally get anywhere in 10 min or less, even during rush hour, the daily drive is going to be something I will need to get used to. However, I am very excited to learn about a new part of Regina and see new communities in other parts of the city.
I am so excited to be working in a Grade 1 classroom and cannot wait to use some of the things I learned from my auntie while I spent two weeks in Arkansas working with her in her classroom. I guess the perks of having an auntie who teachers kindergarten when I will be interning in a Grade 1 classroom is that we can share all of our ideas with each other.
I am hoping that I will encounter different diversities within the classroom I am working in, as there was limited diversity within the classroom I was in for my pre-internship.
