I knew this semester would be busy...but WOW!! Somebody should have warned me. It's a lot of early early mornings and late late nights. Between student teaching, my capstone class, my kids and their activities, and, of course, the house...I pretty much have ZERO time for anything else. Which makes me so glad we had the foresight to potty train Connor over Christmas break :) These past two weeks I have learned just how much you can accomplish in a small amount of time. Who knew so much can get done in the 3 spare minutes you have?!
Student teaching is going good. I was terrified at first, but am getting the feel for it now. Besides the occassional breakdown, I LOVE it! I have a newfound respect for teachers! I did not realize how busy they stay all day. There is ALWAYS something to do, and plan or get ready for. Before you know it, the day is gone. My first grade team has welcomed me and made me feel at ease. I am learning A LOT!!! Can't wait for my own classroom!
I love that I get to check in on Averi's class every once in a while to give her a big hug. And I get to hug Taylor at lunch. I have to say...it's crazy being on the teacher side of things. Next week I start teaching Phonics...which might as well be a foreign language. Thank goodness my third grader will be able to tutor me :) Ha!
