    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
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    Congratulations Bobby! 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! You will also have a chance to really make a positive difference in someone's life.

    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
