1st week, done!

Wow, I can’t believe the first week of my practicum has come to an end!! This week I taught 3 poetry lessons that I am so pleased to say went really well.

I was evaluated by my Faculty Advisor on Monday – my very first lesson – and although she had the wrong copy of my lesson plan, it went smoothly and she was happy with my performance! It was such an accomplished feeling knowing that my evaluation was out of the way at the beginning of the week and I had the rest of the week to spend with just Mrs B and our students.

Speaking of Mrs B, I am so thankful to (again) have such an incredibly supportive mentor teacher. I feel like I have been so blessed with such wonderful placements over the past two years and I know that I have two friends for life.

Next week, it ramps up to 60% teaching load, and I will be responsible for Language Arts, Math & Science.. bring it on! My next evaluation is Monday afternoon, so if you think of it, feel welcome to send positive, encouraging vibes my way! 😉

Ready to Roll

Happy New Year, everyone!

This winter break has been one of the most relaxing I have ever experienced. I hardly worked due to a lack of shifts and this made me feel more like a teacher than ever before, it was fantastic. I lesson planned here and there, but mostly laid low with family and visited with friends – it was bliss.

Now, however, we’re back into the swing of things! Today was the first day back and it was great. The kiddos were happy to see me and I had a great day with my new mentor teacher, Mrs. B. I am really excited to jump into my practicum next week when I’ll be taking over all of Language Arts!! I’m doing a unit on Poetry and am feeling very confident in the unit I’ve laid out. I can’t wait to experience it with my class.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, more blog posts to follow as I get going with practicum!

Thanks for stopping by,
