I have a professional life!
In all of the excitement and obsessing about what shade of yellow to paint the baby's room (can't bring myself to say "nursery" like I'm Mary Poppins or something), I almost forgot to start student teaching today!
The highlight of my day was when a 2nd grader who I had last year in 1st grade choir at church was in my first class. In the middle of class, she turned around to me and with huge bright eyes and a big smile said, "I'm so excited!" in a loud whisper. It was unbelievably sweet. I will be teaching Kindergarten through 2nd grade - little bitties!
My cooperating teacher is amazing, too. She is very excited about our adoption plans and said that I could have any time off I needed for interviews. Now we are just waiting for the phone to ring...
The bad thing about student teaching is that I have to be there at 7:15 tomorrow! So it's 9:51 right now and I am panicking because I was not asleep at 9:30 so I could get 8 hours. I am so pleased that at least my morning placement is but 10 minutes away. Phew!
I already can't wait until Friday! It's fun to have a schedule again. I don't think it will be QUITE so interesting in a few weeks when I am teaching by myself and exhausted. In the meantime, just hook me up to a coffee IV.
