Student Teaching

This week was crazy. Monday I had meetings at my college, came home to eat, went to meet the class I would be with for student teaching, came back home, changed clothes and fed the dogs, went to pick up Josh from school then went to my night class. It was nuts, but the rest of the week was nice. I started student teaching and I love the kids. I am not nervous anymore either. I just had to get started. I had lunch duty this week, so I got to mingle with all of the 2nd graders. It was fun. I also have started doing some little things in the classroom to get a few clerical jobs mastered because in a few weeks I will have to run the whole class by myself. I think it will be fine. I am planning to take reading or language as my first lessons to take over.
We did hear about the house...the owners have accepted our offer, so it has gone to the bank and now since it is a short sale, the bank has to decide if they want to accept our offer, so it will take more time, but no big deal. We had someone look at our house today as well.
I also got the results of my praxis back this week and I passed. Now for those of you who are not familiar with what the praxis is, it is my license to teach. It is a big test that you have to pass to become certified. I am so excited because I just knew I had messed it up. I changed several of my answers and I know I changed them to the wrong answer and had the correct answer to begin with. Well, it worked out and I passed.
Well, Karl has the movie "Tangled" on and it is pretty funny, so I am going to go and watch it. Have a nice week!


  1. Glad your enjoying the student teaching!!!

    Good luck on the house!

  2. I'm glad the first week went well for you! It will just keep getting better. :) Tangled is one of my favorites!

  3. Hi Lori,
    Congrats on passing the praxis. You sound so excited about the student teaching. You'll do great!

    Good luck on the bank going along with your offer. Hugz!!

  4. Hi Lori i had to get all caught up with you I can't believe I missed so much! a new van and new house. I love that house is it in your same town? I want to live in the woods. Joshua's trip sounds really fun with his cousins. So glad to hear you passed your test, like you wouldn't. I hope everything goes well with your new house and getting it. That can be kind of stressful. Have a great week at your school teaching those cute little kids. Big hugs

  5. Hi Lori:

    Congratulations on passing your praxis. After all the hard work you did, it's wonderful.

    I hope all goes well and fast with the sale of both houses. Hopefully you'll be in your new one before the holidays.

    Have a great week ahead my friend. Hugs
