    Question

    Hi All,

    I started my new job teaching American and World History, Theatre, Religion in America and Economics at a small Episcopal High School. This is my first teaching gig since returning to school and getting certified. All I can say is that it was a bit overwhelming and very exciting. Luckily I have a long good friend as a mentor teacher right in the next room (she got me the job.) My main worry is that I have only had a few days to prepare for 6 courses (previous teacher left mid-year) but I plan on going slow and finding my way. Wish me luck. All I can say is that teaching is alot of work and judging from my kids, people underestimate kids! Some of our discussions today stunned me -- passionate and thoughtful.

    Much luck to you in the new job! As a parent I appreciate all that teachers did for my sons. (and for me many years ago) Educators are very special people indeed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    Congratulations Bobby! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Sounds to me like you will make a good teacher. It IS a hard job and under-appreciated. I hope you make learning fun, interesting and challenging. I'll bet you will enjoy the kids...they have fresh, hungry minds. I'm sure you'll have your moments of frustration, but I hope you really enjoy it. You'll be molding young minds!--How 'bout that!

    Question

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the support. I am taking it all one day at a time. I started off thinking I would do all these things and now I see I need to go much slower -- for them and me! It's been fun so far and alot of work. There will be even more as I find ways to make the learning active and fun. Its amazing just how tall an order that is. My room is almost bare so I need plants and posters and maps. I'll let you know if something exciting happens.

    Bobby
