Your Autumn Test Results


You are a dynamic, vibrant person. You aren’t afraid to pursue your passions.

When you’re happiest, you are outgoing and expressive . You love celebrations, and you enjoy showing off a little.

You prefer change to come slowly. You need a long transition period when your life changes.

You find solitude to be the most comforting thing in the world. Being alone with your thoughts feels very peaceful.

Your ideal day is active and full. You like to keep busy with your favorite things, and you appreciate a routine.

You tend to live in the moment. You enjoy whatever is going on, and you don’t obsess over the past or future.

School started for me over a month ago. I did the beginning of the year professional development. The first days of school… and the beginning of the book we have for geography. Now, I’m planning/teaching all of the geography lessons (this is our social studies lessons at this time). I love that I’m teaching something that I am not great in. I love that I have to find ways to teach something so boring that the kids might actually pay attention to. Thus far I’ve won some and lost some. My host teacher has stolen a lesson plan from me and she’s interupted a lesson to tell me what was wrong with it. My time student teaching is half over.
I am greatly unsure at times about my HT. We had a parent email us some information about the Autumn Equinox and that her child may mention it at school because it is what they were celebrating at home. My HT seemed outraged… or rather… ignorant… I didn’t know what to do. My spin on it to her was that at least the parent (who looks like very stereotypical white trash) was active in her son’s education and wanted to make sure that he was taken care of in school. I wish I was more involved with my… beliefs but I am not. I do not have time to be at this point.  But I do not appreciate that sort of reaction to information regaurding someone else’s faith. Tomorrow I’m going to try and find a leaf for the kid or something harvesty.
My kids are not going to like me soon. I have their next chapter outlined. This will not be fun for them.

Vent

Standard

I had to quit my job because of DT. This was ok because my bf makes good money and I’d saved excess FA funds and tax returns to not be too much of a burden on him. We’ve been going well for a month now and it looked like smooth sailing for the next two months. Then I could get a real job and make a contribution to our financial situation again.

And then…. I need my transmission rebuilt. The BF being the wonderful man he is, is using the money he had saved up for this stint of one income to fix my transmission. I do not know what I would do without him.

The only good thing is that things like this don’t happen unless you can handle them.
