I Just Wanna Be Successful!
I've been doing homework all day and as I'm looking through my agenda I"m seeing that the homework is definitely piling on. Read this subject here, study for pop quiz there and not to mention the long list of group work/assignments with due dates quickly approaching. YIKES!! Hopefully, I speak for everyone when I say that this can get really overwhelming but as my friend who recently completed this teacher program last year said to me "Just get ready for an intense year...but it's definitely worthwhile and a great learning experience." I've taken her advice head on and embraced it with open arms. Here are a few of my own pointers as to how to get things done without being overwhelmed:
- Organize, Organize, Organize.
- Staying "on your game" and keeping a list of your purpose, vision and goals handy to remind you why you're going through all this.
- Be sure to make time to yourself. The worse thing you can do is get all the work done and not congratulate yourself with a drink/party with friends/family.
I hope this helps! MeL. P
