First Day of Student Teaching

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Today was my very first day of student teaching! I woke up bright and early at 5 am *eek* and got to my elementary school at 6:30. My cooperating teacher is an early bird and wanted me there when she got there, so we could go over lessons because…. I had to teach all of Reading today! Normally student teachers observe the class for a week, pick up a subject, then gradually pick up other subjects. Because I was in her classroom all of last semester for Reading Methods, plus my CT had a sub all morning, she thought it was best for me to start right away! I was very nervous beforehand, but surprisingly the morning went pretty easy. The kids were extremely chatty today, but I felt the lessons went well overall. Now I just have to get used to getting up so early!
