Student teaching is amazing. Living in a dorm and still being too involved in campus stuff while student teaching isn't quite as easy as I thought it would be, but it is all most definitely worth it. Monday I took over two Algebra II accelerated classes. The students are overall respectful and obedient. The class that I have to start teaching by March will be neither respectful or obedient, they are already testing my limits and I am only assisting in that class now. Controlling 35 rambunctious students will definitely be a learning experience. The teacher I am working with continues to amaze me, I want to be just like her!
The past two days I was feeling overwhelmed with the community service project I am getting started (I keep waiting for a permanent leader to emerge, and waiting...), and that we have all sorts of events coming up that we aren't ready for and that my new schedule conflicts with everyone. Then today, I came home and checked my email, and my amazing board took care of everything for all the events. Tomorrow I can hand over my project to the volunteer coordinator at the org they are working for. And, granola bars were on sale today. Life is good.
