Hm I think this will be bachelor's I'm doing research in systems biology. Simple way to explain it would be to look at the biological processes but through the eyes of physics, simplifying it enough so that you can make a computer or mathematical model of the process. I chose this topic because that way I have some starting point if I decide not to teach and want to get doctorate. I could do research in something connected to teaching but if I continue with postgraduate studies I want to go more in direction of biophysics and so this keeps my doors open.

To finish my university program we have to write what is called a diploma. You get from one to two years time to write like a research assignment. You choose mentor and thesis, do research, write the actual assignment and present it. It's usually around 60 or 70 pages long. And I'm hoping mine will be finished soon

Hi Brokenredhead...you are so close. KUDOS! Would love to hear about your experiences. This is a really exciting time for you. Stay open to learning throughout your whole career. I still learn from my students, every single day. The education students I see going into the profession today are just amazing. I am fortunate to be there to help them and be a part of their lives. If you ever need an old teacher to chat with, just let me know. Old Teacher

Hi Nerisaga, Congratulations...this is such an exciting time. What did you mean that you are "writing your diploma"? Sounds like you may be in an interesting program. Do you want to share about that? I am a professor in a school of education in Florida. I love the time when students who have worked so hard to becomes teachers are reacing their goals. Teaching is really the greatest profession out there. Old Teacher.

Hey! Nice to meet you It seems there is quite a few teachers on SparkPeople. I'm writing my diploma and I hope I'll be finishing university in two months. If I can finish everything in time. I'm hoping to become a science teacher in elementary school. Hope to get to know you better and support eachother on this adventure of losing weight and getting healthy.
Hey, I too am a soon to be teacher. I am studying to be an elementary teacher, with the hopes of being a special education preschool teacher. :) I am currently student teaching in first grade and I am almost finished. (October 5th is my last day!) I can't believe I am this close! I am always looking for support and other people to talk to... so if you ever need anything. Hit me up here...Good Luck!

I'm just finishing universitiy to become a science teacher. I wish to change my life so that when I do start teaching I can be the inspiration for kids. I hope I'll get to meet some of you fellow almost-teachers and real-teachers so that we can maybe share some ideas and support eachother.
