Mini Student Teaching Week

So, here I am, diving headfirst into what we as teachers like to call "Practicum." (I didn't know what it meant until I hit senior year and I'm actually doing it) lol But basically, it's like a mini-student-teaching week. For all five days of the school week I'll be spending time observing AND teaching lessons in a second grade classroom.Last night I laid out my "school clothes" and made a pb & j for my lunch and was so excited, I couldn't get to sleep! I felt like it was my first day of school all over again.
Tonight I am somewhat in the same boat, but it's more because of the jitters of wondering how my two lessons will go tomorrow. I'm teaching a Bible lesson about Samuel, and an English lesson on how to use a thesaurus - which is like, the best, because it can at least help the kids next time they're caught in a tough spot in Scrabble! ;-)

While on the internet tonight, I stumbled upon this picture that I absolutely love! (Maybe because it makes me think of the Christians in Africa. They are unbelievably grateful for what they've been given.) Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the pic, and if you are my dad and you happen to be reading this, please know that I miss your chiropractic skills lots and lots (and would drive the 3 hours in order to get myself a good solid adjustment if it wasn't after curfew here in the dorm.)

That's all for tonight!
