  The Final Say

I'm a little miffed. It seems I only got a B+ in my America Sees Red seminar class. I'm going to stop by BSU today and grab my final paper and see how I did on that. The instructor told me that our last paper could really make our grade. I thought I had done pretty well on it too. My grades in that class were impoving each time, from a C- on the first paper to a C on the second and an A on the third. I really thought I had duplicated what got me the A on the third paper, but to get a B+ instead of an A in the class, I must not have done as well as I thought.

From the chart at left you'll notice that I did not break the 3.0 mark for my cumulative. I was really hoping that this would be the semester, but alas, it is not to be. It's actually a lot more depressing than I thought it would be that I didn't make the cut in that class. I so thought I would get the A that now even a B+, which I normally would be extatic about, is a stark reality. Anyone looking at my GPA chart would know that I'm not a perfect student, but I do try. As you can tell from the orange line (which excludes my Fall 2002 semester) my perfomance overall hasn't been too bad, but one bad semester will really bring you down.

The good news is that I only have 3 semesters left, counting the summer semester. Fall 2008 will be full-time student teaching, worth 16 credits, so really only next semester will have classroom instruction. Signed up for classes already, it's amazing that I only had 12 credits left to take to finish both my major and minor. I'll be taking:
• Intermediate Japanese II
• Teaching Experience II
• Teaching Secondary Social Studies
• Content Literacy for Secondary Students
Also going to be helping Jenny a bit with her Educational Technologies course. Pretty heavy load all in all I guess.
