First Week

The first week was boring but educational. Now I know what to expect during the days before school starts- meetings, more meetings, and yet more meetings. After two days of that I was anxious for the students to arrive, but that just meant two more days of filling out index cards and going over the syllabus. So in a way, I still haven't seen a single typical day in this school. Somehow I doubt Monday will qualify either.

I lucked out and got placed with a host teacher that has a window in her classroom, a rarity in this school. She has fish and a tortoise but no plants. I will definitely have plants in my classroom, especially if I have a great big window.

I'm not sure how much blogging I will do about my student teaching. Nor do I know how much time I will have for blogging in general, so bear with me. I will still be reading your blogs when I can.

Sorry it was boring. I'd of course like to hear more details, but of course, there are time issues, privacy issues etc.

Hope it improves.

You will have to make a choice. Your bloggin friends or molding the lives of children. I say blogging. The kids have TV.

A tortoise? That's pretty awesome.

Glad that you will have plants in your classroom. The best thing about plants is that if they get neglected for a weekend, you won't necessarily have to spend Monday wearing black and flushing it down the toilet.
