Jenn over at Peas and Crayons.
So, let's set the scene. You are a senior double education major, and it is a Wednesday morning. You have to be at your placement site for observations by 8:00am.
The alarm goes off and you peal yourself out of bed and somehow manage to get to the shower.
Make yourself presentable in your teacher-professional attire.
|something like this: black dress pants, gray tee, patterned cardi|
Make yourself a nutritious and filling breakfast. This is crucial. Lunch is too far away to eat something un-substantial for bfast.
|my standard these days: pumpkin oat bran (does anyone else find the bran more filling? loving it), with apples baked in, flax and cinnamon. That mug is usually filled with black coffee.|
Grab lunch/snacks that you packed the night before (so important!). Leave your apartment to walk a half-mile to where your car is parked (gotta love college towns) and set out for the 40 min drive to your placement site. In the Middle of Nowhere, Ohio.
Observe/teach 4 periods of 6th grade math with one of the most amazing placement teacher I have met. I won't actually be license to teach 6th grade math (only 7-12), but this was the best field experience I have had. Maybe I will look for a middle school position after all?
Finally, lunch!! By this time you are famished. You sit in the teacher's lunch room and listen to all the gossip while chowing down.
Sprint from the school, jump in the car, and speed back to Athens to be back in time for class at 3:10. While driving, smash that second apple.
|Anyone else loving the crackle nail polish? My sixth graders sure did. Building rapport anyone?|
Ugh, class. Try and spread out your during-class snacks (luna bar and orange) to last until you finally get home.
Finally, get home and resist immediately passing out in your bed to indulge your ravenous tummy.
Lounge around (probably watching Food Network) until you hit the hay. At 10:00. Like a grandma. Proud of it.
Hope you enjoyed a day in my crazy life! CanNOT wait for it to slow down for my 6 week break!
