First Week Back in Class

Hey Yall!
So today was my first week back in class. Let me tell you it was a rollercoaster at most. I got into a severe car accident a few weeks ago and still have a concussion. But today was the day I had to present my presentation on Optical Illusions. I discussed different types of optical illusions and that there are optical illusions in our daily life. An optical illusion is an illusion caused by the visual system and characterized by a visual percept that appears to differ from reality. Optical Illusions can use color, light, and patterns to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. The information gathered by the eye is processed by the brain, creating a perception that in reality, does not match the true image.

All About Me

My name is Karli Olszowka and I am an Early Childhood Major at Governors State University, class of 2019. This blog is for my own experience and for my  Field Experience and will be a great opportunity for my educational career and as a future educator.

I chose to go into Early Childhood at a young age. I was in about 6th grade when I knew I wanted to teach young children. The child’s development is important because it shapes who they are and who they will become from a young age. It is an educator’s duty to establish a great foundation not only with the child but with the child’s family as well.

I have received 2 associate degrees one in Teaching Special Education and one in The Arts. I currently am a part-time teacher at a day-care/pre-school in Homer Glen. I have experience teaching ages 15 months-11 years of age. I also have been a nanny for 10 years. I am apart of a and helped start a foundation called “Angels “R” Watching”. This foundation was created with the goal of providing students with the school’s supplies and tools they need to further and enhance their educational experience. We collect donations, both monetary and generic school supplies and provide them to underprivileged students throughout the United States and South America. To date, over 30,000 school supplies have been collected and we’ve provided over 20,000 backpacks to students. These supplies provide every student in need with the tools to succeed in school and create a brighter future.


I wanted to thank you for reading about my career and my life.  I look forward to sharing my semester and the rest of my schooling as I finish my final Field Experience before Student Teaching. Hope to continue my blog for the rest of my life as well.
