Well, the school year has begun....and I just might be crazy! I agreed to teach 7th and 8th grade this year, and although I love the kids, the 7th graders are NUTS! I had no idea how incredibly immature they were and how you actually have to practice how to walk in to the classroom the appropriate way, how to leave the classroom, how to ask a question, how to sharpen your pencil, etc.....they need to be trained on everything! It is kind of nuts.
I guess I don't have much to report yet since we are just one week in to school. My plan will be to report on lessons that went well, things I've learned, and funny situations. I, of course, will be changing student names for confidentiality, but think the documented memories of the year will be useful next year. :)

As this school year comes to an end, I have decided that I will start a blog that I will use next year to discuss my life as a teacher. In this blog, I hope to include any exciting lessons that I do in class and any personal experiences I have with students that are blog worthy. Although the stories I share will be real, I will use fictitious names to hide the identity of my young students. I am excited to see how much I use this next year and to see how it can help me as a teacher. It will be fantastic.
