Back to School!

Today was my first day as a student teacher! I woke up feeling nervous and excited all at once! I was ready though! I had my lunch packed and bag ready to go. I got myself ready and after the obligatory first day of school photo shoot I was ready to go!
 This year is such a big change for me. No longer just a student with classes 2 times a week and my days open to study and get other things done. Now, it's up at 6, wearing professional clothes, interning, being a student myself, and then home for course work and living! And you know what? I couldn't be more excited. Nervous, oh yeah, but so excited!
 Today was such a great day too! Despite the chilly temps and driving rain the students were excited and so was I. They are such a cute class and it will really be a great year. We learned about how to walk around the school and other classroom expectations. We did some small getting to know you projects and shared about our summers. The day flew by!
 The school I am at is a wonderful community. I already feel apart of the teaching team and know that this year will really be special. I am in a wonderful district that really values education, children, and educators. I am seriously jazzed to see what the next 179 days hold for us all!
Happy new school year! It's going to be a great one!

How exciting- I can't wait to hear more as the year goes on. You look great - loving that dress- completely jealous that you needed a coat. It's still 100 degrees here.

I haven't stopped by for awhile...how exciting is all this? Many moons ago I was an art teacher in an elementary school. It took me a bit to get my own style, but what a great time it was. I still get the bug to teach each fall, bring on the new crayons and colored pencils! Have a great year!
