Still here, I think

Wow, it's been a crazy couple of weeks.  I am officially one eighth of the way done with student teaching already.  How did that happen?  Also, who decided it would be a good idea to work while I am doing it?  Gosh, I'm getting everything done because, ell, I have to...but, I forgot how dang hard working so many hours plus all of my school requirements would be.  And hey, I'm not 22 anymore, so this old gal is going to be at around 9pm every night.

This school is challenging to say the least.  Unfortunately I can't share too many stories, but I am in an alternative high school for kids with emotional / behavioral disorders.  It's rough.  So challenging, yet so rewarding.  I'm only teaching two classes a day right now, but I am exhausted at the end of the school day (I'm still there all day, just only teaching two periods right now).

I swear I'll be a better blogger and schedule more posts, since I'm not doing a great job of "live" blogging during the week.  But, hang in there with me, guys.  Some of your kind words and comments really keep me going.  And I am also slowly trying to keep up with all of your blogs, as well.

Hang in there with student teaching! It's such a rough semester for sure, but you'll make it and feel so proud! I did mine in Kansas City, MO, and it was EXHAUSTING but also amazing! :)

Hang in there! I haven't been doing live posts either. I hope the rest of your student teaching goes well.
