Last week was a whirlwind of sessions and preparations for our first days in class. I have never felt so overwhelmed in my life (and I have lived/moved to another country). It was really strange for me to go to sessions after being a teacher and learning about all of the TFA teacher stuff. I am trying to merge the two views so that I can become a more well-rounded educator.
Anywho! I love my students. I have not taught officially, yet. However, today we did some goal setting work in small groups and I got to spend time with individual students. It was amazing. I cannot wait to get to know them better. This is going to be short because I am super-busy. Tonight we have open house, and tomorrow I teach literary analysis! Wish me luck!
