Holy smokes y'all. Okay, first of all I have one more week before I begin student teaching. I have a feeling it will be a quick, bittersweet, but hopefully relaxing week. I am getting together meal/lunch plans, my student teaching bible binder & finalizing all of my paperwork. I can't believe that I get to meet 16 new kiddos! I am so excited. Luckily for me, I am pretty good with names and I am quite certain I will have all of the names + faces down by the end of the day.
It will be sad to leave my job & the 40 kids I have there (and my awesome director/friend), but I will be looking forward to December when I will join them again!
Today I worked on a lesson plan template that I think I will use for planning, although that could all change very quickly. If I have learned anything thus far in my "teaching career" is that sometimes you can plan for something (whether it's a lesson, field trip or a template) but when the time comes to use it or put it into action, it might totally fail. That's OKAY! :)
I am still on the hunt for some comfortable teaching shoes that will "go with everything." Any suggestions? I know danskos are kinda funky looking & would totally throw me into mom-zone, but I have seen a lot of teachers wear them. They seem comfortable.
Hopefully I can find some Labor Day sales this weekend! I will also be looking for some solid neutral color pants.
Please, any tips or tricks or suggestions or anything -- throw them my way :)
On a more fun note, I just recently looked up the premiere dates for all of "my shows" and WOW. Y'all can expect for me to be parked on the couch the last full week of September! All of my shows are coming back in a whirlwind week that might have me reaching for the DVR. This gal can't stay up much past 10:30 so my mom and I might watch them the next day. Here's my lineup:
Anyone else watching?? I am seriously obsessed with all of these shows. Any other Parenthood fans scream at their TV last night during the Emmy's when, not only did the promo commercial come on, but they announced it's the farewell season! Why do all of the good shows get the boot so soon? (I'm looking at you, Friday Night Lights.)
