I was off this week due to Fall Break and I attended the NEW teacher conference.
Based on the week before:
I would have to say that I am trying very hard to do the activities/lesson plans that were taught to me this summer.
They are working out quite well. There have been days though when we are rushing to clean up and I don’t always get my 3 questions or my transition in. I am really struggling with timing. The students are really engaging in the process and I am enjoying that and them very much. I had to have my advisory meeting on Monday of that week and I hated being out of the classroom. My greatest concern is making sure I will be able to cover all of the standards and lessons in the time frame given to me. I want to do the FUN things but make sure that I am covering the subject content so they are prepared for their tests and the SLO at the end of the year.
