School’s Out for Summer

Met my cooperating teacher today. Turns out he teaches geography and economics. He sounds really flexible, which I’m pretty sure in the long term is a good thing, but right now it has me feeling…unclear. I almost would have preferred it if he’d said call me by xxx, expect to be here for xx periods, and expect to teach xx. I know that’s the result of my usual mini freak-out over a new environment, so I’m going to stick with the “flexible is good” approach.

My first inclination is that geography is more my thing, but he suggested, and I agreed, that I’ll take a look for the first week or so, and then we can talk about where I want to start incorporating the teaching experiences I have to do for my first prac. He loaned me a copy of the econ and geography textbooks, and I probably will take a look at them over the summer.

Speaking of summer, mine officially began today. To celebrate, I went swimming for the first time. Little chilly, but as long as I kept moving it felt great. Especially after driving all over the county in a car without air conditioning. Tomorrow I relax, and then I start working on all the little things I want to accomplish before school starts.

Nearly forgot that Wednesday means there’s another edition of the Carnival of Education. Swing by to see what educators are writing about.
