It seems with every step in this process, I get overwhelmed and begin questioning myself all over again.
First, student teaching. Then, the Praxises (Praxi?). Then, the OPI and WPT (the speaking and writing Spanish exams). Then, the interview process. Then, signing the contract. Then, starting curriculum planning...
Now, getting into my classroom!
I went to the school today for the official tour and some info about upcoming events and... drumroll, please... the keys to my room!
|This board by the door is where I plan on putting a monthly calendar, bienvenidos sign, hall passes, and bellwork sheets.|
|The front board that will actually get some usage.|
|Other side of the room. Not sure if both of those tables will be staying or not.|
The previous teacher also left me all of his materials for each unit. Seriously, all of them. This is also a little overwhelming, too, because I have to sort through everything and see what I want to use.
Oy vey, I have a lot of work ahead of me. A whole lifetime's worth! I guess this is what it means to have a career.
So this is the before. Stay tuned for the after shot!
Here's to getting ready and getting set!
