Hello, It’s Steffi ♡ (10 Facts About Me!)

I decided to finally put a ‘face’ on my blog once and for all. Here we go!

  1. Hello! My nickname is Steffi ♡ I am currently working as a Primary School Teacher. I’m handling Primary 2 pupils this school year!

Teacher Steffi in her natural habitat. Hahaha! ♡ This picture was taken way back 8th of February this year, thus, the date on the board.

2. I turned a quarter-of-a-century-year-old last July.

3. On the same month above, I received my diploma in special education! Best birthday gift ♡

4. I’m currently trying out bullet journaling as well! I’m posting once in a while in my IG. Follow me if you want! @bujowithsteffi ♡

5.  I recently started to like pink–Pastel Pink and Rose Gold to be exact.

6. TBH, I really need to catch up on my food/drink hunting already. I’ve been very busy with work.

7. I’m learning calligraphy!

8. I’m going back to school again in January 2020. I’ll take up Diploma in Early Childhood Education.

9. I am so forgetful that’s why journaling works for me.

10. I’m a coffee and milk tea lover forever! ♡

I probably mentioned some of these already in my previous posts, but that’s all I can think of right now. LOL. Anyway, I’ve been MIA for a while now due to work, but I’ll update whenever I can ♡

Work + School Update (Part Three!)

It’s been a long time since I had an update about my work + school. Aside from updating you (if someone comes across this post), it’s also a documentation as to where I am at this point in time. So, here it goes! ♡

Work Update:

We’re approaching the end of the school year. One more unit for the last term and we officially say goodbye to school year 2018-2019!

I’ll have my training over the summer. That will be interesting and I’m looking forward to it!

School Update:

A lot has been happening these past few weeks.

First off, I just officially ended my 2-week practice teaching at Mandaue City Central SpEd School – OT/PT Center yesterday. It was a bittersweet experience I would never ever forget. I documented everything from Day 1 up until our last day. I’ll probably post a video about it soon.

PS. It was just a short practice teaching experience because we still have to attend a lot of seminars and immersions which will happen this month.

Second, I’ll hopefully graduate this July 2019 with a Diploma in Special Education. Currently, I’m holding a Degree in Communication and a Certificate in Professional Education.

Initially, I was planning to proceed and get my Master’s Degree in Special Education.. Not until two weeks ago. Now, I’m planning to skip it first and have a Diploma in Early Childhood Education instead.

It’s an ambitious move, I know–sacrificing my weekend-offs and going back to school all over again–but I don’t want to regret things just because I was lazy and just because some people think it’s ridiculous.

It’s tiring, yes, but it’s all going to be worth it. ♡

Blogging Therapy

For me, blogging is very therapeutic.

There’s that sense of relief and liberation when I write about my feelings or the things I’m very passionate about.

People reading my blog and leaving positive comments is just an amazing bonus.

Working + studying at the same time is very exhausting–I’m in dire need of a blogging therapy now.

My heart and mind is just bursting with feelings that needs to be written down.

I guess I can say I’m back.. Again.

Day 9 ♡ | 30 Day Blogging Challenge: What’s In Your Bag (Work Bag Edition)

Day 9 – What’s In Your Bag (Work Bag Edition)

What do I bring to work everyday as a teacher?

  • Black medium-sized back pack
  • Big and small wallet for coins
  • Laptop
  • Mirror
  • Make-up Kit
  • Book pouch which I later turned into my “Teacher’s Essentials Kit” (White board markers, scissors, stapler, sticky notes, red ball pens, and all those little teacher-y stuff really.)
  • Small pouch for my phone wires (I hate messy wires!)
  • Small Hygiene Kit
  • Coffee sachets and some snacks!
  • Hoodie or scarf

That’s basically it! I’m not extra, so I don’t really have much. Hahaha.

Join the challenge! Check this post for the questions!

See you on Day 10 ♡

I Survived!

Hi, lovelies! Hi, blog! ♡

I’m back again. Last update was me talking about being busy. Well, I survived it all–for now. Hahaha today is the first day of No Work for the holiday season! Yey!

I’ll probably binge-watch the movies I missed on Netflix or update more here.

I’m just happy to be back in WordPress.

6 days until Christmas! ♡

The Good Kind of Busy

Oh, wow. I haven’t updated this blog for a while now–a lot has happened these past few days and I’m bursting to share it here!

First off, as per my previous post, I’m now working as a Lower Primary School Teacher and I’m loving every bit of it. I’m always excited to teach my students new things everyday! The cute little messages they give me is just the cherry on top! ♡

Aside from being a teacher during the weekdays, I transition to being the student during weekends. I’m already taking my classes for my Masters Degree in Special Education–and I love it even more!

As of the moment, we are learning Sign Language in one of my classes and I’m proud to say that I already know quite a few signs just enough for a deaf person to understand what I’m trying to say. Aside from that, we will soon learn how to use braille as well. I can’t explain how motivated and excited I am! I’ll probably do more detailed posts soon about the things I learned in my SpEd classes or my experiences of being a Primary School Teacher! ♡

As what our School President said, “We are not stressed, we are just busy!” Heck yes, I am busy–the good kind of busy–and I love it! ♡

Work + School Update (Part Two!)

There are a lot of things going on in my mind right now and I don’t know how to start this–wait, I guess that should start it. LOLJK.

Work Update:

Good news! I’m not unemployed anymore. *throws confetti* Well, sort of, but I’m starting next week! *throws confetti again*

I’m hired as a Lower Primary Teacher and by next year, I will most likely handle and lead my own class already. Can’t freaking wait. I’ll miss my lazy days though, not gonna lie.

Currently, I’m still completing my requirements so I can hand it all in by Monday. I am exhausted but, we gotta do what we gotta do.

School Update:

For my Masters, I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I’ll start this Saturday, 27th of October. No rest for me but I’m excited to meet new faces!

♡♡♡

I do hope I can still continue with my other planned posts here. I’ll make this work. Hoping to post every Wednesday/Thursday the least. Ciao! ♡
