I PASSED!!!!! & Questions
I officially passed my Praxis Elementary Education: Content Knowledge test - which means I'M noW OFFICIALLY ABLE TO BE LICENSED TO TEACH 4TH & 5TH GRADE!!! I am so, so excited and I could not be more thankful for the way everything is turning out in my life. Next step: JOB.
Today's also my baby sister's 20th birthday - Happy Birthday, Samantha! Love you lots!
Now, my questions for you all...
1) What would you like to see me post about? I'm losing sight of what to write about... sad, I know. But it's true! I'm tired of rambling on about myself (and if you know me... that's a big deal), so I need something new. Do you want to see websites I've used in the classroom and how to use them? Ideas for the classroom? Ways to keep the classroom dynamic going? How to get your students engaged in what you're doing? I dunno... what do y'all like?!
2) Have any of you all subbed before you got your own classrooms? What did you like and dislike? How did you prepare for each day? Did you have a bag of tricks that you swore by (or still do swear by)? Did you have something prepared for each grade level? I'm soo scared of going into this because I'm not sure what all to expect, being that it's not my own classroom and I don't know the children all that well!
3) How long did it take for you to be comfortable in the field of teaching? Do you have any thing that you absolutely teach each and every year, because it's just that good? How do you find your resources, and how do you afford them?!
Thanks for those who respond - I truly appreciate your help & your support!! :) I'll be back tomorrow with actual content - I'm just too tired at the moment to write anything content related... interviews/appointments/etc are WEARING me out!!
Have a good day, y'all!
