First Day of School

Tomorrow is the first day back to school for the kids in Virginia Beach. We never start school here until the day after labor Day since we are a beach town and we need all of the kids to work right through Labor Day. Actually I just finished my job as the manager of our local pool today! I am excited that I will be back at Providence Elementary this year working with the same student as last year. This year he will be in fourth grade. I like to joke around that I am excited to be in fourth grade because I learned so much in third grade, and I can't wait to see what I will learn this year :) Seriously though I am looking forward to this year. I think now that I know my student a little better I'll have better ideas of how to best work with him. I should be doing my student teaching in the spring. That will last 16 weeks. So it looks like I will have to have a long term sub while I am doing my student teaching. Then in June I will be finished with my masters degree as long as everything goes according to plan! I'll be excited to have my own class next year. I actually do enjoy being an assistant and I learn a lot by being able to observe other teachers on a daily basis, but I'm ready to have a group of my own :) Hopefully the first day of school tomorrow will be a great one!
