Five Minute Friday time! 5 minutes, write what comes to mind. no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write. This week’s word is:
I started student teaching this week. Next week I take the PRAXIS exam I should have taken in May; as long as all goes well, I will be full-time teaching a week from today.
I’ll be full-time teaching at my alma mater, a literal dream come true.
I live in the neigboring county from my university, so I was quite shocked when they OK’d me to student teach at my school. despite my requesting it, I figured they’d want me to stay in the metro area, but was pleasantly surprised. and relieved.
Here, I feel at home. I love being at a place where teachers, principals, and students already know and love me.
Here, I feel prepared. The teachers I had at this school prepared me to be teachers, and the professors I had in colleged helped shape me and pave the way.
Here I am. At the biggest new chapter of my life. At a place I love, a place I feel so comfortable in.
Here. Here in this moment, in this season, in this place like home- I am at peace. I am happy.
ok i won’t lie: I may have edited one word because I repeated it in about 10 times. I tried, I promise!
