Faith Restored

Another week of student teaching has come and gone.
I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying it.
Before this semester, I was seriously debating 
whether I wanted to teach for the rest of my life.
If you knew me, you would know that was serious.

I have wanted to be a teacher since I could talk.
I know that sounds cliche, but it's the truth.
I just knew it was what God had called me to do.
After my past two field experiences, however,
I was seriously reconsidering my decision.

But y'all.
This semester has completely restored my faith in teaching.
You don't know how happy I am!
My mentor teacher just keeps getting better,
the other first grade student teachers are awesome,
my students are so precious,
and I'm just loving that I get to teach them everyday.

All of that to say,
week two was wonderful.
I picked up morning meeting, number corner, and reading groups
this past week.
Next week I'm picking up math.
I'm a little nervous for that one.

Good news: Monday is MLK.
Which means a shorter week!
Which in turn means a longer weekend!
I get to sleep in for three days!!
(And by sleeping in, I mean waking up at 8 am. 
Apparently it's impossible for me to sleep in now 
that I'm used to getting up at 5:30. I guess I'll take it.)

Sorry about the lack of pictures on the past few posts.
I'm horrible about documenting my life with a camera.
Hopefully this week I'll have some school-related pictures to share!

Have a great weekend! Happy MLK Day!


  1. Aww yay! So glad you're having a great experience.
