Today was my last day at work (no more arguing with lawyers!). Accordingly – it felt really real that I’m actually becoming a teacher. I have a placement, I have a school, on August 15th – I’ll have students. Awesome responsibility, AWESOME.
Since I’m sans job – I’ll be spending the rest of the school year at my father’s school teaching ELLs. Also awesome! As I drove past Staples today it took every single ounce of my will power not to go in and buy everything. That’s silly as I should at least wait until I know if I’m teaching 3rd, 4th or 5th grade before I get supply crazy (also, Office Depot is waaaaaay cheaper!). I want to know now so I can UNIT PLAN and MAKE AWESOME MUSIC VIDEOS ABOUT MATH. I am spending a good amount of time working on classroom management, working on mechanisms for weekly parent communication and my ongoing WORLDROCK project with justcallmemaesta. I’m signed, sealed, delivered and so ready to be a teacher.
I know this sounds really nerdy and like I’m too excited – but it’s just because I am!
