After the first day at student teaching, I kept hearing Michael Bluth's voice in my head saying, "I've made a terrible mistake."

That first day just dragged on and on. My cooperating teacher cheerfully introduced me to her students, saying, "The is Ms. R... she will be with us every day for the rest of the year!" When she said " every day," I think I blacked out for a split second, hearing the unmistakable screams of panic ring in my ears.

As the weeks have gone on, however, it's been better and even become somewhat enjoyable. My cooperating teacher is AWESOME.

So basically my summer plans include working every day from 8am until 4pm without recieving any monetary compensation. Also, I will be working 20 hours a week for UNLV. But don't worry. I'm already planning next summer's leisurely three-month vacation, as well as all of the government holidays I'll surely enjoy as a public school teacher.

What are your summer plans?

unpaid internships and whatnot are a huge exploitation of the american workforce and should be illegal.
