let's talk student-teaching.
These photos are from a field trip the first graders took last week. As you can see... not a warm, pleasant Spring day. But it was still fun. We were out looking for signs of Spring, which you know, is much easier to do when the flowers and animals aren't cowering from the cold, but we managed to spy some new blooms and buds and a Robin or two. I took tons of photos and turned them into a movie for the students to watch a few days later. I think I found my niche, being the one always toting a camera. I told Husband that when I'm a teacher, I know exactly how it's going to go... for every activity, I'll be snapping photos and a few days later we'll be watching ourselves in an iMovie, set to some super cool tunes. I am already looking forward to producing Open House slide shows of my students that will bring all the moms to tears. The key to getting us sappy moms (myself included) crying tears of joy is two things: smiling children and an emotional tune about growing up.
This is going to be so good.
For now, though, I'm just happy to be participating in someone else's classroom. I really have such an amazing example of a teacher, so I am feeling very blessed. :)
