So, student teaching starts in one week. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous, I would also be lying if I said I didn't feel ready. I really do feel ready for this challenge! I do however know, that this will be a challenge. I have to write a letter of introduction about myself to give to my student's parents at our open house next Monday. As some of my readers are parents, I ask the question: What would you want to know about the student teacher teaching in your child's classroom?
I am all to aware of first impressions, and this has caused my closet to be in a frenzy looking for that perfect outfit that says "I'm young, but I am responsible, hard working, well put together, and capable of teaching your child." That is a lot for one outfit to say, so I am stressing :)
I met my Supervising teaching last week and he is amazing and very welcoming! We are meeting again this week and hopefully I can get my desk put together, my letter to my parents, and my first lesson plan done before then!
I am considering a remodel of this dusty, mildly gross, unattractive, desk in our garage. I am going to set to work on it and hopefully post pictures of the process soon! Until then, this soon to be student teacher is signing off!
