Hey there EDTC 400 fam and hello to every other blogger that will perhaps (maybe one day) stumble upon this blog post! Grab a drink and a snack, sit back, relax, and enjoy this read about… ME!
I am Kylie Lorenz, I was born in Regina but I was raised in Raymore with my mom, dad, and little sister. Ever hear of Raymore? Probably not, it is very small! I actually laughed out loud when I saw Raymore was on Wikipedia. When I lived in Raymore I did what any small town kid would do, cruise with friends. I attended Raymore School throughout grades K-12. I graduated in the year of 2016 and I loved school so much I decided to go back and work as a teacher’s assistant. This job is what helped me decide that teaching is the career path that I want to go down. In 2017, I moved to Regina and attended the University of Regina under the Faculty of Education. I am studying under secondary education, majoring in math. Two years strong, almost halfway done!!!
Have any of you ever had to fill out you biggest fear, pet peeve, last words, etc in your yearbook? Well I have and I thought, why not do that for my blog!? But I will update my answers so it fits into my university lifestyle. This will make it more fun for me to type up this post and perhaps it will be a better read for you all(??).
Biggest Fear: Spiders and heights
Pet Peeve: When someone opens their bag of chips upside down
Last Words: “I’ll do it at 7:00”.. *At 7:05* “I’ll do it at 8:00”
Worst Happening: Math 221 (odd considering I’m a math major)
Best Memory: Passing Math 221
Future Ambitions: Becoming the best teacher I could be for myself and my future students
I blogged throughout EDTC 300 during my very first semester at the UofR and my experience in the class was amazing!! My prof, Katia Hildebrandt, did such an amazing job introducing the class to a fun and unique way of learning. As a math major I was skeptical of the class, I always thought of math as a paper and pencil subject. After taking EDTC 300 I learned how to build a professional reputation for myself online. I learned that anything is possible when it comes to learning. I am so happy I took EDTC 300 because as a future educator, knowing that there is no limitations when it comes to learning is such a great mindset to have.
Goals for EDTC 400:
- I would like to learn more about WordPress! More so I would like to know what else I can do for my blog page. I want to make sure my blog is at the best it can be and I am sure there is so much more to learn when it comes to creating a professional portfolio.
- In EDTC 300 I was introduced to so many fun apps, programs, websites, etc for my future classroom. I am very excited to learn even more throughout this semester in EDTC 400! I want my future students to have fun learning and have fun participating in my lessons that I provide them…. and what’s more fun than technology? Probably nothing!
- I want to build relationships with my EDTC 400 classmates. I want to know what they think is the best way of learning through technology. After all, the best way to grow is getting ideas and advice from others. I wish to expand my following on the internet and get introduced to even more educational pages on social media!
SELF PROMO TIME! If you are interested in following my blogs but you aren’t the biggest fan of WordPress, no worries!! As soon as I post my blogs it is automatically posted on my Twitter as well. You can find me @KylieLorenz_! Toss me a follow, I’ll catch it, and I will toss you one right back!!
Until next week,
