Hello hello again. It’s been some time since I last posted on this blog, and it seems as if those posts were all only about art. Well, as much as I’d love to continue talking about art, I know that times change, classes change, interests change… the point is, I’ve got to move on to bigger and greater things! (Not really. I honestly don’t know who’s keeping up with this blog anymore.)
Without further ado….
Hello! My name is Jennifer Slingerland. I’m from North Pole, Alaska. I attended North Pole High School, and currently take distance courses through UAF. I will be graduating this spring with an AA in general studies, but hope to continue on to grad school in Michigan at SC4 (and perhaps study abroad for a year at Kensington in London. It’s a dream of mine to take a hop across the pond and see what all the racket is about).
Anyways, I’m an Elementary School RTI (Response to Intervention) Assistant, which basically means I teach low-level kids reading skills. I was a maths tutor as well out at Ticasuk Brown Elementary, but had to leave once the expenses for travel outweighed the paychecks I received. I’ve had fun, though, teaching and mingling with the kids (most of whom are incredibly bright and well-mannered, though there are a couple rotten eggs among the classes. It is unfortunate, but manageable).
I do graphic design as a personal side project (if you want to see my work, look for the Logo on the new University Women’s Health office on University Avenue, just down from UAF’s CD). I’m currently debating whether I should re-immerse myself in acting, or if I should continue on drawing and writing for my own personal enjoyment. I do hope to be professional and one day have a book on the New York Time’s Best Seller List, but acting is quite a passion as well.
I suppose I should stop talking before this becomes too much of a rambling post. If you’d like to know more, feel free to ask a question through comments, and I’ll try to get back to you when I can.
Thank you for reading! 🙂
