Back to School
Tomorrow is my first day at Booker T. Washington middle school. The students aren't back until Monday, so the next three days will be spent in faculty meetings and other preparatory rituals. I'll meet my mentor teacher tomorrow, and hope to make a good impression.
Four hours per day in the middle school, then between four and eight hours a day at Notre Dame taking classes--including Saturdays--through January. In the Spring our graduate course load eases off because we'll be taking over teaching duties from our mentors, writing our own lesson plans and working out ways to meet curricular goals.
I'm terrified and excited in equal measure.
