Well, it's hard to believe, but in less than a month, I will be finally starting my student teaching. My student teaching will actually be broken up into two placements. The first two months will be spent in a high school, and the last two months will be spent in a middle school classroom.
It feels like I've been waiting for this for ages. This semester, my methods course gave me a taste of what to expect in student teaching. But, I'm looking forward to actually putting into practice all that I have been learning. I have hundreds of great math teaching ideas bookmarked. My entire family questions my sanity because I am constantly interrupting conversations to say that something would make a great math lesson.
After living, breathing, eating, and sleeping math for the past three and a half years, I am ready to teach math. Am I ready, really ready? No matter the answer to that question, my student teaching is soon to be a reality. A reality that will begin January 4th. It's going to be a journey, and I invite you to join me on this journey. Any feedback, any comments, any help you would like to give, I will gladly accept.
Please join me on my math teaching journey.
