Go and find the people that you know.
Sometimes, I feel like my lessons, sequencing, and resources for the kids are crap this year.
They’re learning, don’t get me wrong… but I’m hoping I’ll be a thousand times better at this next year.
Absolutely.. About a month in I had how next august will go all planned. From one first year to another.
and it could not feel better.
It wasn’t a very exciting day, we were just reviewing for our unit test tomorrow, but he had good things to say in his scripting. He complimented my classroom environment. My students were really great, although this class usually is just exceptional in the morning, so they were on point today as well. They were asking the right questions, working perfectly individually and when it was group work time they were on task and not ridiculously loud. He mentioned that he was impressed when the phone rang a specific student knew to get up and quietly answer it if i was busy, she’s also a spectacular student and knows to take care of whatever the caller needs without interrupting me. (unless she has to)
So, needless to say, I’m quite happy that he enjoyed being in my class (it was his first time all year, the other observations have been done by my A.P) I’m ready for the post-observation conferences so I can officially be done with that mess this year and see what my official scores are. And hopefully next year I won’t need 4 observations.
The year is winding down and I’m already focused on next year and getting things together for that, whatever I may be teaching. I’m itching to know. I really hope it’s just science, my life will be much easier. I’m also anxious to know if I”m getting into grad school or not. They’re just not in a hurry to let anyone know. Although, one of the professors did email my science partner and asked about me, so that’s a plus. She let me read the emails and it looks promising. I just really hope I don’t miss out on a free Masters degree from Vanderbilt. So, tumblr community, please keep your fingers crossed for me.
And when I need you, I need it quickly. In fact you’ll never know.
