… making my bed in the morning
… organizing my house
… creating awesome, technologically amazing lesson plans
… just lounging around with my husband
… taking longer naps (because I have to fit a nap into my schedule now. There’s no option when I get home after dealing with kids all day. Sometimes I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep in my car on my ten minute drive home.)
… making dinner
… more than five minutes to eat my lunch Monday through Friday
… photo editing regularly
… watching movies
As my new principal put it, it takes awhile to find your “teacher legs.” Week three has come and gone, and we’re on the brink of week four. There’s so much to learn and do and be. Credential programs are pretty much a waste; you don’t learn how to be a teacher until you teach.
well said. You're totally going to find your teacher legs. and then you're gonna rock it.
