Ask Away Good Sir
My name is Maria!
I am 23 years old.
I teach Middle School Math, Science, Gym and Bible.
I do the sports. All of them! They are my love, my passion and my escape!
Recently I have developed a passion for coaching and I love it!
I enjoy laughing; probably one of my favourite hobbies! I do it every day.
My favourite TV shows are: Criminal Minds, Lie To Me, How I Met Your Mother, Community, 2 Broke Girls and Jeopardy. Quite the plethora - I know!!
I am an extrovert and love going on adventures and meeting new people, so please, say hi!
It’s been a while since I’ve played 5 soccer games in a day, and my body is being reminded of that right now!
In the end we finished 3rd, which was great considering I hadn’t met more than 75% of the people on the team before and had no idea how they played.
I hope this because an annual thing, because it was a tonne of fun - even if I was playing against a handful of my students who play club soccer!
It took a while before I found this community in Chilliwack, but now that I’ve found it, I am so grateful!
Today is a charity event for Big Brothers (not the TV show) and it consists of a HUGE soccer game and with a fairly large crowd!
Kind of makes me nervous, been a while since I played this level of soccer, I am sure it will be fine, I just don’t want to embarrass myself!!
The band consisted of 4 cute men around my age and for most of the show the Grade 9 girls were just giving me the eyebrows and at the end they came running up to me and said “Ms. Collins those boys are really cute.”
I rolled my eyes and walked away.
Done my supervision of 12-3am!!!!!
Played real life slender, dodgeball, spoons, Halo 4 and just sat around talking with students.
It was a neat experience, but I look forward to when I don’t get the shittiest shift!!
my school is really bad at communication and my colleague informed me today that next week I don’t have my 7’s for 3 days because they are at a softball tournament, ultimate frisbee tournament and track meet. He sort of told me non-chalantly and I kind of was like “whaaaat, are you kidding me?” and he looked puzzled and I was like “it’s the end of the year! I need every Math and Science class I can get!!” (that is my version of getting mad at someone!). Then I found out that my Grade 8’s are writing a cross-canada exam tomorrow that no one told me about. Apparently the principal agreed to write it and the booklets have been in our school for almost a month… but did anyone bother to tell me anything about this?!? NOPE!!
I felt bad for getting mad at my colleague. I am generally pretty even keeled. I apologized to him in the afternoon, he said he was kind of confused because he has never seen me act like that before.
Sometimes I just get frustrated because people seem to think that because I am so ‘flexible’ they don’t need to tell me things. But it just adds stress to an already stressful first year!!
