Life Cycle of the Student Teacher

I am so behind.

If you are one of the unfortunate few who subscribe to this site via RSS feed, be forewarned – I’m going to be backposting a lot of entries this weekend, so you’re going to get a fair number of out-of-sequence boring diary posts in your feedburner. Sorry.

Anyway, I wanted to share something one of my professors showed us in class the other day. It’s a chart of the “biorhythm” of a typical full-time student teaching experience. Kind of funny; I mentioned the biorhythm idea (from earlier post) in class, and my prof whipped this out. Guess she knew the comment was coming!

I started my real full-time duties about five days into February, so you can stage a guess as to where on this chart I might fall.

It’s a full-page graphic, so you’ll definitely want to click to enlarge:

The Bee’s Knees

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.
