First Day of School - For Real This Time!


My TOTALLY AWESOME Cuz, Anisa, does this each year at the start of the new school year.  I thought I would copy her cool idea and do it too.  (Pardon my picture it was 7:00am in the morning, and I was not happy about having to student teach!)

Yep, it's official - I started student teaching today.  Oh how I hope the Lord helps me through these next 60 days.  I have meant to do this for so long, now the day has FINALLY come, and I don't want to do it anymore.  59 more days....and counting.  Yes, I am seriously counting down the days.  60 days seems so far away...

However, my mentor teacher told me that by the end of student teaching I will be loving it so much I won't want to leave.  HA!  We'll see about that!

Just in case anyone cares to know what I am teaching, I will be teaching a lot of different subjects.  Well what are those subjects???  On what is called "A" day I will have two advanced cooking classes, lunch period, prep period, and then will observe a pro-start cooking class.  On the opposite day, "B" day, I will have an adult roles class, sewing (which I am completely nervous about), lunch, prep period, and then a fashion strategies class.  I don't know how I feel about all this, it's only been one day.  I'm sure time will tell, and so will my attitude. ;)

Hey Libs! I can understand why you are nervous. That is a lot, but I'm sure you'll be fine. Just one word of advice (coming from the student end of things -- cause I lived it)...don't let your personal feelings about the situation bleed to the surface. The kids will feel it and use it to run you in to the ground. I'm pretty sure we tore the dreams of two different students teachers in two.

I will always cherish my student teaching time. You'll do great!

That is a lot of different classes! I thought it was tough enough to teach two different types of history! I agree that even though my student teaching was difficult, I look back on it fondly. I had an amazing cooperating teacher and learned some unbelievable lessons. It was a great experience. I was glad it ended, but I will always cherish it, too.

That is awesome you are student teaching. I cannot wait until I get to student teach also. You will do a tremendous job.

Just think sis, you're almost done. By this December you will have graduated college and then you won't have to worry about homework and can just worry about where we are going to travel to next ;)
