I am almost half way through my student teaching! I cannot believe it; it feels like I just started. This Monday will be week 6 in my 13 week stint. Just last week I started teaching the full 90-minute period for three classes. They never said teaching would be easy, but it is by far one of the most rewarding things I have done. I suppose this partly has to do with the school district I am in. The kids are hardly any trouble and so polite--they say "Thank you, Mrs. Virgin" when they leave the class! I know, it sounds unreal. It's like I'm in a dream school! I can only imagine how different it is in other schools throughout the country. I also think it's rewarding because I am still a student teaching students. I'm learning right along with them in the classroom, but in many other aspects than English. More posts to come on teaching because currently it is my secret to happiness.
