Muppet Personality Test

Thank you Alissa for leading me to this fun personality test! Here's my results on the Muppet Personality Test.

You Are Rowlf the Dog

Mellow and serious, you enjoy time alone cultivating your talents.
You're a cool dog, and you always present a relaxed vibe.
A talented pianist, you can play almost anything - especially songs by Beethoven.

"Spring" "Break"

Here at Dordt, on the first official day of spring, a sparkly snow is coming down steadily. It is really quite nice-looking (from inside my apartment), but I'm praying that it doesn't make the roads too bad and that everyone makes it back safely. And I'm hoping (a little bit) for a late start tomorrow.
I did not have a long break; I started right in with student teaching. Today was my 6th day in LeMars in orchestra (4th grade-high school). We visit the four elementary schools on Monday-Thursday, and have one of the two middle school groups and the high school orchestra every day. I feel like I have started to get to know a lot of the kids, and other important things like where the offices, bathrooms, teachers rooms, and other important things are.

Kill the fattened pineapple!

Today we celebrate (with fresh pineapple chunks...our room's preferred method of celebration) the return of roommates from lands afar (Canada). And experience the subsequent barrage of paperwork and other information about teaching and licensure etc. Fingerprinting and background checks, philosophy of education, sharing crazy stories about student teaching, etc. Welcome back Lynola and Nicole!
