It's starting to feel real! I got an email today telling me which classes I will be teaching come August. I will be teaching:
4 World Civilization classes (with a mix of geography!)
2 U.S. History classes
4 semesters of Government
This means I will be teaching a good mix of all grades (9-12)! I'm excited for that! I am a little nervous about the World Civilizations (since I never took a class like that in high school), but I am excited to figure it all out. And, I'm pumped about the Government and U.S. History classes! Dream! I will have a blast with the Government classes during the first semesters because of the 2012 Presidential Election. Any ideas on how to make that great? I've got a few swimming in my own head right now, but I'd love to hear more ideas!
I'm also looking for ideas for the first day of school. I'm still having a hard time deciding what I will do. Ideas?
I am still sometimes surprised when I think of the career choice I ended up deciding. Considering, I was convinced I wanted to be a family practice doctor all of my life. I worked so hard in high school and even started college early to start on the path of becoming a doctor. Oh, being a doctor is still a dream of mine. But, I realized that I was so obsessed and in love with the idea, that other realities and dreams were being pushed to the side (like getting married, having children, raising a family). As hard as it was to let that dream go, I know that I will be able to focus on much more important (and eternal!) dreams with my new career choice.
And I am more pumped than ever!
It's getting real! I'm a teacher! So excited!
Just 2 more months and I'll be in the classroom with some awesome kids.
