Last night was interesting. You think I should sleep well and be at peace knowing that I have a full time job and don't have to apply for jobs or interview ever again. It is a great feeling, really so why did this not reflect in my sleep habits??
Well, actually, it did reflect. I am SO excited to teach and realizing that I will get to have my own classroom and plan things the way I want that I couldn't calm down. I was thinking about building my scope and sequence and planning lessons. I was creating PowerPoints and worksheets in my mind and how I wanted to teach them to make in interesting instead of boring PPs everyday. And then I was figuring out how to make packets and less paper work for me to grade. And then I was thinking about the general information I would leave for a sub. And then the list went on and on and on and turning off my brain for the night didn't work so well. I guess this was reassurance though that I will be teaching at where I'm meant to be.... I'm SO excited, it isn't even real! :D
My goal is to have most if not all of my lesson planning/ worksheet making/ PowerPoint creating/ packet organizing/ etc-ing done this summer. Then the school year will be SO much nicer! Like so desperately much nicer because I won't have to do all of that then. Instead, I can go home when the day is over and relax. That will be fabulous. And I figured I might as well put all my eagerness to good use right now while I have it! ;)
So here is to hoping and praying that tonight is filled with deep, school-free dreams instead of mind wandering, counting sheep, quiet noise listening, school planning, tossing and turning night! :)
