Student Teaching

Student teaching is a lot more than I thought it would be. It's a lot harder than I thought, a lot more work, a lot more stressful, but also I am LOVING it much more than I thought I would! I seriously have the best class of little first grade babies EVER. I have really enjoyed getting to know them over the last week and a half. I have started doing a lot of small group and one-on-one work with students. Next week I begin taking over whole group teaching. I'm starting out with Reading and am SO excited about it. 

Here's a look at a little of what has gone on in 1st grade this past week and a half...


My favorite part of the week was Tuesday when I got called to the front office.. 
Adam sent me flowers with a sweet little note that said "Keep working hard!" : )
I love him!!

  7. I missed out on a student teaching experience because my undergrad was in a different major. Long story. With that being said, soak it in! My first year was such a challenge (but still amazing), and I think a lot of it had to do with missing out on that student teaching opportunity. I'm currently on my 5th year, and I still love it as much as day one! Enjoy!

  8. I'm so glad you're loving it! What a sweet boy you have, he needs to give Nick the hint of random flowers. He did iron my clothes and make my lunch the other night so I guess I can't complain! We picked winners! Good luck starting your take over, that was my FAVORITE two weeks ever! :)
