The night before...

So this is my night before student teaching! Nervous are an understatement as I think about all the students that I will be working with starting tomorrow. Since you don't know what my new students are like, I guess I should tell you about them.
First of all I am teaching in a small school in Clinton Iowa. I do have a kindergarten class but that doesn't mean that I don't have my work cut out for me. My students don't quit have the best up bringing! I do know that the school I am working in the one school in the district that has the most free reduce lunchs for the students. That is completely different from what I grew up with since my school was one of the weathly schools in the district. My host teaching is AMAZING. I already am so comfortable with her, it is almost unreal.
Don't think I forgot to tell you about my students! These students are ones that are going to be a challenge! I have some students that are BD students, and others that are attention seeking ones. My teacher did inform me that this class is a challenge for her and she has been teaching for quit some time. Even though this scares me to think about I know that this is the type of school that needs me as a teacher. I know with every ounce of me that I have alway known I belonged in a school that would contain challenging students. It might be hard to sleep tonight because I have that feeling a little kid would be on the Chirstmas Eve as they are trying to go to sleep.
I should probably stop rambling on since I am getting up at 4:30 to go workout before I start my adventure and I still have to go pick out my Big Girl Outfit for until next time I will leave you with on of my favorite quotes from one of the most inspirational books that I have ever read...


Geoffrey Canada: I was like what do you mean he's not real. And she thought I was crying because it's like Santa Clause is not real and I was crying because there was no one coming with enough power to save us..

I want to be that superman (superwomen) to rescue that save them!

  1. Being in a low income school, caring about the students will allow you to be "superwoman" so you will be great!
