My experience as a student at G. S. U. has been very interesting as well as challenging. The challenges I have encountered were with the computer issues. I find myself becoming a little frustrated when I have computer issues because they pose as a hindrance. These issues tend to be overpowering at times however, when I am able to get back on track everything flows a lot easier. As a teacher I am finding that you wear many hats and play many roles. I enjoy watching my students transform before my eyes. Being a positive impact in my students lives as they are molded into creative and motive driven human beings. As a teacher you can be friendly however, hold a standard and be firm about your decisions. I have also learned that my students watch what I do and how I respond or react to situations that arise in and out of the classroom. I have also be inspired to take two more classes at G.S.U. I only hope that my next professor will be as knowledgeable and passionate about student success as you all have been.

You will do well. Just keep practicing with the technology and you will get it. Have one of your students to show you the ropes ,this really makes them feel good to be able to teach the teacher something. We know they are all computer savvy. I wish you the best in your teaching career. I know you will do really well.
