When I saw that one of my assignments was to google myself I got excited because I wanted to know what I found. Before I did myself though I did some of the people that were around me. I found some fantastic twitter accounts from around 2009, the girl that I googled was so embarrassed about what we found, simply because of the grammar and some of the goofy things that she said. I didn’t find anything bad about my friends by googling them so that’s good for them.
When I finally got around to googling myself I was very surprised to find that a lot of stuff from this class popped up. My daily creates were at the top of the list, I thought that that was pretty cool because what I’m doing now is positively impacting my future and how some people may see me. If I go into images I don’t always find myself. My grandpa passed away within the last year so three of his pictures popped up from different newspapers. I am also on some of Chadron State College’s articles that show other people’s pictures. Some of the original daily create pictures, people from high school, and Pinterest pictures that I liked are scattered within the image page as well. I found that a lot of what I have done throughout college is what pops up. I think that that is a really positive thing that future employers would look at. This blog is also one of the first things that pops up for my name. This would be a huge help for employers because they can look over it and see how much enthusiasm I have for teaching and see if my philosophies line up with theirs and if I would be a positive influence in their school.
When I went to page two a lot of honor roll stuff pops up. Granted it is from the 6th grade to now but I am extremely proud of what I have accomplished throughout my schooling career. I know that it is never all about the grades and that employers also look at references and extra activities that you have done throughout school but I also believe that good grades reflect discipline and dedication. I have enjoyed this assignment very much and I will continue to google myself periodically to make sure my name is always shown in a positive light to others online.
