Today was not only the first day of school, but my first day of student teaching! I’m back at Burnham School, with my friend Isabel as my cooperating teacher. I’m beyond excited for the next several weeks.
I also know my students very well already, so I don’t have the “getting to know you” period that many teachers experience on the first day. I already knew everyone’s name, so the two new students who moved to our town that are in our class this year were easy to identify and learn their names.
I brought the students back from PE, read them a read aloud, and even taught the math lesson. I’m so comfortable here, and already feel so ready for my own classroom. I’m even listed as a staff member on the website!
My goal between now and the end of November is to just enjoy my experience and soak in every minute I have in this school. I absolutely love it here and cannot wait to see what this fall has in store for me!
