Meeting my Mentor!

August 25, 2007 at 12:31 pm Leave a comment

I’m going to be meeting my (first) mentor teaching on Monday – the first day of classes! I’m very excited. It’s not what I’d expected – I’d been led to believe that we’d meet our mentors a week or so ahead of time – but it really does put me a lot more at ease to have an actual, concrete plan.

My initial mentor teacher is DR. I’m going to go in at the very beginning of school and see what things are like, and then I have to leave to go to work. Then I’ll return as early as I can to watch the end of the school day, and stay to meet with DR. I’m actually not sure that school starts in the morning – it may not start until 12. If I can find that out, then I’ll skip the morning session, as I’d just be wandering around the school by myself…

Eee! (That’s an excited eee, not a bad eee.) I just went to CHS’s website, and DR teaches accelerated tenth grade English! If I could choose any high school class, I really honestly think that would be the one I would want. I’m SO HAPPY. Nice turn around from my previous post, huh?

Speaking of which – thanks to those of you who stopped by and offered words of calming, reassurance, and friendliness. It means a lot to me, and I hope that we can continue to talk as this year of adventure goes on. 🙂

This is the teaching journal of a student first-year second-year THIRD-YEAR (!!!) English teacher. I am writing this blog as a reflection for myself, a way to keep friends and family updated, and a sharing-ground between other educators online. I love comments!

I am striving to maintain anonymity on this blog so that I may more freely interact with my fellow edubloggers. If you know who I am, please help me protect my anonymity in your comments. I use pseudonyms or initials for everyone I write about to preserve their anonymity as well.
