first (official) day of school

Today was my first day teaching as "the teacher" not just a substitute. It was a long day as we had to cover all eight classes (we are usually on block schedule). I only had to teach three but it was exhausting! Thirty-five minutes to do anything in art is just not enough time.

I had a great time! I introduced myself and my metal work. The students were receptive to my introduction and I can't wait to get to know all of them. The next couple weeks are going to be slightly easier as I am finishing up a project they are already working on, however, when I start my own lesson from start to finish, it will be a little nerve racking. I can't wait!
