My board says I have 11 weeks left, but my planner says this:
Shakespeare class: 21 more sessions
Educational Leadership: 11 more sessions
Literature for Adolescents: 8 more sessions
Structure for Modern English: That’s everyday considering its online. 😦 As a side-note, I thought I liked grammar. This is why I wanted to be an English teacher. Things have changed! My goodness! I had no idea all that it actually entailed. It makes my head spin! Give me Calculus any day of the week!
Note to self:
Do not take classes on Monday’s, especially classes that extend into the evenings. What were you thinking? Your kids make your weekends impossible. You need a day to recover.
Do not take evening classes 2 days in a row. Seriously, what were you thinking???
This week I have had little moments as I am walking along campus and I think about how quickly this will all be over. I picture myself in a classroom teaching. I have thought about my favorite mentor teacher and the field experience I was blessed to have with her two years ago. They were only 2 short weeks, but they were 2 short weeks into the glimpse of what could be the rest of my life. If I can just focus on this I will be able to get through it all.
Why did I think I could do this? Most days I don’t have 5 minutes to put together a coherent thought. Yesterday, I was so tired I could not even write properly taking notes or muster up an answer to a simple question. I keep saying I am going to have to let perfection go, but it is so much easier said than done. I just need to pass, right?
