Anyway, one thing I really have enjoyed this semester is my job which happily continues through the school year. I work at the National Building Museum as a museum teacher.
The National Building Museum looks like this:
How lucky am I that I get to work in a building that looks like this? Very lucky. That's the answer.
I teach school groups, special events like home-school day, and birthday parties on the weekend. Let's get this straight: this job is really hard. It's scary to get up in front of a group of kids, teachers, and parents you've never met and keep their attention and teach them something. I'm not always very good at it. I forget classroom management techniques. I get nervous. But I love it because it's hard. And because it's fun. And because it helps a new generation feel that museums aren't intimidating.
I hope once I graduate I get to keep teaching in a cool historic place.
