Tomorrow is the big day, I begin my official student teaching placement! I'll be spending 5 weeks in a 1st grade classroom and then in mid-February, I'll begin 10 weeks in a 5th grade classroom. I'm nervous and excited all rolled into one. Last week was a great trial run of what it was going to be like being gone Monday-Friday, 7:30am to 4:30pm- something completely foreign to me. I already detest my alarm or anything else that wakes me up at such a crazy hour... and no afternoon nap- what?!? Rick says I'll adjust and get used to it... here's hoping!
There's a lot I'll miss about not being home with the kids, but I'm looking forward to stretching and challenging myself. I apologize now for my lack of blogging over the next several months, I will be elbow deep in lesson plans most night. That is, when I'm not in bed by 8:15pm. I will do my best to keep up with all of the important stuff!
Wish me luck... these kids are cute, but they can eat you alive! :)
