I feel right now that I’m on a rollercoaster and I’m about to speed off and soon it’ll all be over and I’ll be like ‘what happened?’
It just dawned on me that in 9 days time I will be starting to teach the final module of my teacher training. It’s 5 weeks long and I have to have 3 observations. This all seems fine..apart from the fact I haven’t been given the unit yet so I have no idea what exactly I’m covering. I have no lesson plans done, no resources and no observations booked or planned for. Along with that I have 2 very lengthy assignments, a paper to write and present at a conference and my usual work besides.
It’s all going to go so quick and because all of this has just dawned on me I feel like tomorrow is the start of it all.
I’m so excited to be finishing my teacher training and to be moving on to new things. Along with a new job for me comes the next step in our lives (buying a house and getting married). I’m so lucky that Scott has supported me through my teacher training. I know what ever I do he will always support me and cheer me on, although I know I must be doing his head in with my ‘teacher to be’ meltdowns at times.
I never expected teaching to be so demanding and time consuming. I’m hoping it will get easier for me though the longer I’m qualified. I know whatever happens I will be fine though, because like I said, Scott always cheers me on and gives me pep talks when I need them. I’m extremely lucky. I feel this will be the last moment of calm until May, or at least mid April. It will go insanely quick. So glad that I pre-blogged and scheduled some posts in for this blog!
Farewell spare time! Hello qualified teacher?
