1st day of 2nd grade... for Mommy!

Today was a first for me... I began my final journey in obtaining my teaching degree -- Student teaching! I had a great day and think I'm going to really enjoy this group of kids.

I was a little scared when I first walked in Mrs. Allgood, the classroom teacher, told me to come into the hall. She went on to explain that this class was a little rowdy and that their first week of school was rough. She said that she'd sent home more parent notes last week than in her previous 10 years of teaching. She wanted me to be aware of what might happen. To say that I was double nervous was an understatement, but as the day began the kids were great. It ended up being a WONDERFUL day; personally I thought the kids behaved very well.

The 2nd grade teachers are still working out the details of daily life and how they will administer their material, but I enjoyed getting to assist some of the students with their work today. I can't wait to see what the next 16 weeks hold and how the kids will develop and grow.

I hope day 2 is as wonderful as today!
