Almost There

My classroom looks less like a box and more like an English class now. I’m missing some books – hello, where are my three torn-up copies of Jurassic Park? – so I need to do a search through the garage.

Gah, I can’t believe I’m worrying about lost paperbacks when there is SO MUCH TO DO.

Right now my class sizes are kind of worrying me. I’ve got 32 desks in my room, and don’t especially want more than that. My school is smallish, and class sizes should be smallish, too. I’ve got four classes under thirty, which is quite nice, but the other two are 35 and 36 strong. I’ve never had a class over 32, and… well, if it’s what I need to do, of course I’ll do it. But I hope it’s not something I have to do. We have an email from the admins telling us that class sizes are still getting balanced out; I just hope they’re balancing mine, too.

They hired three of us to the English department at CHS. I’ve heard a rumor that there were over a hundred people who applied for those three spots. Could be baloney, but regardless – if I have to teach 40 kids, I’ll teach 40 kids.

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.
