Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
May 04 2010

first post

So… this is my first post in this blog.  I’ve never really been good at consistently posting in these types of things, but I figured I’d give it a try again.

I just took my only final for the semester and am therefore all done with school.  It’s weird not being a student anymore, because now I am going to be a teacher.  I’ve been in college for five years now, so it’ll be a little strange transitioning into being at the front of the classroom rather than just sitting in the back.  I’m getting a bit nervous for institute.  I finished all of my pre-institute work already so I can study for the MCAT before institute starts.  I worry sometimes that my students won’t take me seriously and that it is going to be very overwhelming.  I’m also very nervous about being a grown up and making grown up decisions without my parents.  I just bought a new car and have to start making payments on those.  My dad won’t be paying my rent anymore :P  Scary!  I am excited though about moving back up north (Connecticut) so I can be with my friends from high school some more.    It should be a lot of fun. I know all of this will lead to a very rewarding experience that is definitely out of my comfort zone.  I am looking forward to learning more about myself and becoming an “adult.”
Here’s to becoming a secondary math teacher in CT :)
