I was scared to death of graduating and entering my first
"BIG GIRL JOB".
I thought I was too young.
I thought teachers were supposed to be old, married, and more established in their life.
But now I'm doing it.
Young, Single, and yes I'm admitting it: Living with my Parents.
And guess what?
I'm LOVING IT!
It's now just as normal to be called Ms. Bradshaw as Sandra.
I am not afraid to be firm and semi mean in order for my class to behave.
I enter in grades.
I plan lessons.
I suddenly care about my 9th graders,
and I'm continually stressed
hoping they're learning the concepts they need to in my class.
I create tests
I incorporate different teaching methods
I keep role and
I have rules posted in my classroom.
I feel like 90% of my job is classroom management
I feel like my part job title is sometimes:
babysitter or part-time nagger.
I even break up fights in the hall.
It's official, I'm a teacher
AND I LIKE IT.
I know this might not be interesting to all of you out in the Cyber World...
But it is to me. And I love it.
It just feels good to be in the right place for me.
I enjoy my job.
But so rewarding.
And I've only been at it for a few months.
