Here I Come WPMS!!!

Its official, I got my first teaching job…and I am thrilled. This is something that I have been awaiting for a LOONNNGG time. I finished methods this semester (the course load you must take before Student Teaching) and was suppose to begin Student Teaching January 11, 2010, although, a new opening at the West Plains Middle School became available; Title One Communication Arts. I am hired to help students who are classified as ‘bubble students’, these students are within ten points from scoring basic to proficient on the MAP exam, so I am there to help them. I will have approximately ten students per hour ranging from grades 5th through 8th. I will still be observed by my Student Teaching advisor just like the other Student Teachers.

Over Christmas break I will be busy preparing lesson plans, beginning of the semester activities, and decorating my classroom. I am so thankful that I have picked things up here and there over the last few years (or I would be spending a fortune).

I am looking forward to this great opportunity and cannot wait to begin January 5th, 2010!
