Two weeks Down…

two weeks down, but only six days in the classroom. still am learning a lot about myself as a teacher and what i will accept in my classroom, and what won’t fly. mostly, the things that i won’t accept are just pet peeves and things student need know they are doing when they might not be aware of that. student teaching has been a whirlwind so far, and tomorrow starts week three of twelve weeks in the classroom. i think i am supposed to take over 8th period this week, but we will see if that happens. i think having my cooperating teacher gone this past week on vacation really let me experiment on what works for me without her watching me. week three shall be interesting since it is also my first full week, monday through friday, in the classroom.

Employ the vernacular.

Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.

Parenthetical remarks (however…
