    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

First Day of TPA: Done

I am relieved after teaching my first lesson of my tpa today with my little monsters after their long break off of school.  They did pretty well with the lesson, considering they are re-adjusting to the school rules and behavior, and they did actually seem to really learn something (which was fabulous to see!).  Today was one of the most stressful, since I had to videotape this lesson and have my supervisor come and observe a different lesson….back to back.  Ahhhhh! haha.  The rest of the week (after tomorrow, that is) should be relatively more down hill.

Tomorrow, I have to videotape my second lesson of my tpa, which will be the most important to tape since it covers the most essential information.  I hope and pray that it will go well, and hopefully have a few less behavioral mishaps occur during it!  All in all, I just hope that they learn what I am trying to teach them as completely as they can and are successful.  Obviously, that is my goal as a teacher.

Fingers crossed.
