Today I realized something ….
I like teaching.
I took 3 classes today and at the end of the day I was practically floating home. The kids seemed to like my teaching too. Its amazing that a few weeks ago I was affected by a bit of apprehension and uncertainty. Today I feel like I really want to keep getting up and getting better at teaching.
Next week I am taking a group from the beginning of a new term. They are starting IM for the first time on Tuesday and I’ll be the first teacher they will see for the subject. This is such a good opportunity to grow over the next few weeks with the students. I can get a feel of what its like to set boundaries and have them tested. And then we can see how I will respond.
