Well after four years of college, this is what it all comes down to!!!
Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life as a high school English teacher! I am very very nervous, but I think I will be okay once I get in there. I can't believe this day is here and that I am now officially entering adulthood.
I will be teaching 9th grade English this year, and am really looking forward to the curriculum! I have a great support system within the English department at the school I have been hired at and everyone has been very nice.
I didn't ever realize how much work went into starting from scratch. Rearranging desks, new employee paperwork, writing and editing a syllabus, shopping and decorating the classroom, attending all teacher workday meeting and break out sessions, and much much more! I have learned so much just in the last week and I can't wait to learn more. I have been what I like to call a sponge through this whole process. I have just been soaking up as much information as I can!
I will let everyone know how it goes tomorrow so stay tuned =) Wish me luck!!!
