Justin’s Bio

     During my journey to becoming a certified teacher I was a sitter for the summer of 2011 and 2012. It was an excellent experience. I am looking for summer work as I finish my journey, but possibly for additional summers to come since school will be out of session.
     I remember my grade school experience all too well. Class after class and year after year sitting with my left elbow on the desk and chin on my palm as thoughts unrelated to the material ran rapid. Lectures and dull independent practices made 45 minutes seem like 450 minutes. I often daydreamed about being a teacher, but not just any teacher. I would become an extraordinary teacher that made learning a fun and enjoyable experience for my students.     High-school was a bit more enjoyable than grade school when it came to academics. However, the main reason for my motivation to learn was wrestling. As a wrestler if one couldn't hold a C average they would lose their spot on the team. My senior year was approaching its end. Many people in my life felt that I would be a great business owner. The more I thought about it the better it sounded, and teaching fell by the wayside. Illinois Central College followed by University of Illinois (Springfield) was a positive experience.     I did receive a bachelor's degree in business management, and truly enjoyed the learning experience  unlike my previous academic years. An attempt at starting an e-business and a couple of management jobs resulted in the passing of 3 years. This amount of time was all I needed to realize the business world was not for me. My heart knew teaching is my calling; therefore, I began taking education classes part-time at Illinois Central College. Substitute teaching was the perfect fit while on my journey towards becoming a certified teacher. I knew it  would give me practical experience. There was no other greater support than that given to me by my mom, dad, aunt, and uncle. I was fortunate to land a long term substitute position as a physical education  teacher just 4 months after my start as a substitute teacher. A few weeks later it was brought to my  attention that I was sought after because I had a positive reputation throughout the district. This experience strongly reinforced the fact that I was meant to be a teacher.     March 28, 2013 is the date I completed my student teaching. It was an excellent experience. I had a wonderful host teacher, and learned invaluable information from her. Three more months from now will mark 4 years from when I began this journey. As the saying goes, better late than never. Now, I can't wait to get my own classroom, and create fun learning experiences for my future students.
