Day One

Today was my first day of student teaching. I got lost twice on the way there but still managed to get there right as my cooperating teacher S got there. Speaking of S, she is really nice and seems to be a really good teacher. All of the other teachers make fun of her for being too organized but it is very helpful for me.

Some of the highlights of the day:
  • a boy named L bought me a cookie at lunch
  • we got to visit the public library and it was awesome
  • someone said it felt like April out and S said she wished it was. D said he didn't want it to be April because then Miss Bracken would be gone.
  • by the end of the day I had all their names memorized
  • I bonded with a girl named L over our love of cats. P told me she used to have a cat named Smokey. He was a boy.

Lowlight of the day:

  • my sandwhich was disgusting

Tomorrow I am going to start working more with the kids. Today I basically just observed without getting involved but from now on I'll be helping with small groups and starting next Tuesday I will be teaching everything except math and the week after that I will be teaching full time.

  1. This is going to be great! Thank you! Sounds like a very successful first day. Remember: pack tomatoes and pickles separate from the sandwich and assemble just before eating!
