Journal Two From Alexis
Hi, I'm Alexis and I want to major in Early Childhood Education. I would love to become a kindergarten teacher. I love interacting with kids and helping them learn new things, its a rewarding feeling. It's why I got a job at the Delaware YMCA which was my interesting fact, I work in the child watch center, which I saw as a opportunity that would help me to get the feel of being around kids that will be the same age that I will be teaching and get a head start on seeing how they interact and visualizing the things they know already and some things they are unfamiliar with that I might be able to do in my lesson of teaching that will help them in the ares that they struggle.
For the novel The House on Mango Street, the theme to me seems that the moral of the story revolves around one girl and her struggles to fit the pieces of her identity, she is unhappy that she has no friends, unhappy with the life styles of the remaining houses she's had to live in including the one on Mango Street where she is currently now living. She is unhappy with the name she was given which also happens to be her great-grandmothers. A quote from the novel " I would rather like to baptize myself under a new name, a name more like the real me, the one nobody sees." She also mentions a little bit of history of how the women where back then in her great-grandmothers generation and how she doesn't want to inherit that because she carries the same name as her.
