All of that being said, I've decided that now is the time to begin blogging about all of my teacher-y wisdom (just kidding! -- it will actually be about my lack thereof). This is probably a good time to insert a disclaimer: I'm not a real teacher. Not yet anyways. My unofficial official title (which I've coined myself) is "almost" teacher, because I begin official student teaching in 9 days (eeekkk!) I'll spend 8 weeks in middle school and 8 weeks in high school, essentially responsible for the day to day operation and instruction of the classroom. And then I'll be a real teacher (degree and all!)
So, this blog is all about sharing the journey (although it's already been quite a journey to get to this point!) of my teaching career from the verrrrrryyy beginning: an "absolutely true" view of what it's really like to be in a classroom for 8 hours a day, responsible for 100+ other human beings. Stay tuned for weekly doses of almost teacher-y wisdom :)
Here we go!
