I am enjoying every moment, mostly because I know that it won't last forever--the constant balance of a million and one plate in the air! I taught my first whole group lesson today with 30 squirming fourth graders. It was a slight change from 20 attentive first graders, but hey, I'm flexible. Which is what I had to be to get this lesson done! I used my natural teacher instinct to go a different path sensing that the plan would only divert them further away. I have had time to reflect and know what the change and watch out for...tomorrow when I get formally observed!! What? Yes, it's true! We are to that stage people! I'm so close to finally reaching my goal I set when I was in fourth grade!!
Better get back to being overwhelmed. Funny how I can find time to blog and not to do any of the above! Until next time!
Side-note: Students do not like my hair scrunched!! I get comments like;
"Ms. Glenn, it looks like you just woke up, you have bed head."
"Did you have a hard time fixing your hair this morning?"
But, come in with straight hair and you will get a once over that results in an approving head nod and a compliment, "your hair looks good, today."
