Hey everyone! Well It’s official I am already frustrated with technology, definatly one of my weaknesses! Anyhoo, my name is Nicole Helland and I am entering my 4th year of elementary education. I am originally from Assiniboia Sask. and currently living in Moose Jaw. Prior to moving to Moose Jaw I was living in Medicine Hat, there I worked as and interpreter for a boy who is deaf. I interpreted for 2 years and loved my job!! I decided to move to Moose Jaw when I med the most amazing man, then was when I decided to go back to school. Returung to University after being out of school for then was 10 years was very scary, but now something I am very proud of my self for doing!
These past 3 years of school has proved to be very challenging for me, but I kicked my own butt to get through it! And now it’s here, my final year of University, a time I thought would never come. As I enter my fourth year a new beginning to my life has come, I am expecting our first baby to be on September 6th, boy or girl we are not sure!!! One thing is for sure my boyfriend and I are very excited to be parents! Although we have already been a mommy and daddy for the past 5 years to a beautiful little girl named Lucy, she is our sweet little Shih tzu!! This new beginning will be a sure challenge as well but nothing we cannot handle!
This summer I am working full time at Mosaic Potash mine, this will be my 3rd summer working there. I am also taking 4 classes so I can be caught up when the baby comes in September, and all I will have left is my internship, which, I will be doing in Septembr 2014!. A busy summer it will be with weddings and many camping trips, which I hope I will be able to lug my pregnant butt around in the heat!
I am looking forward to working through this course and hopefully learning something about working with technology in the classroom. A few pictures for you all to see who I am and the loves of my life will be posted below!!
Chow for now
