Beginning tomorrow morning Ill be spending all day, every day, at a local high school. This will go on for almost 6 weeks! Im excited and a little scared. Unlike many education department practicum programs, this one is NOT just about sitting and observing. We are required to teach. In fact at a minimum I will be teaching a 3-day consecutive lesson to one of my assigned classes!
It isnt student teaching (for one thing, the coordinating teacher never leaves the room), but as our Education professor puts it, its really close.
One of the best things about this program is the fact that Im going to be sharing time between the choir teacher and the math department. The high school is totally willing to help me get experience in both fields! Woo!
The only thing left is to see how my household adjusts to the fact that I have to be at school at 7:30 instead of 9. Hee!
