First Days

On Mon, Jan 22 2007, in Jessica, by Jessica

I have started my internship at St. James School in Montgomery and will be here (I think) until May 3rd. I have to teach for 20 full days, 10 of which are consecutive. I thought I’d take my time and put those toward the end, however, my cooperating teacher has the flu and is home sick, so I have been asked to run rehearsals for 4 choirs in addition to other music classes. I am kind of excited to be thrown in this way, because I don’t have to worry about messing up in front of an expert. Today’s high school rehearsal went suprisingly well seeing as how I knew about 5 minutes before class that I would be teaching it. I am looking forward to learning more, but am nervous about completing all the required red tape in order to graduate and obtain my teaching certificate. As I side note: I have never seen a group of people more obsessed with Starbucks than this school. The teachers, the students, the parents…wow. My teacher must drink 4 cups a day! (Thankfully, I am not drinking coffee right now to help with my Acid Reflux. Otherwise, I would go broke !)

    I had an acid reflux problem, prilosec was all that helped me. That and they tell me if I lost some weight I’d be ok too, but the prilosec is easier to take 🙂

    Good luck with your teaching, about the being away from Leroy thing, that is only temporary and it’ll be over soon.

    “Good Game” dear. 😉

    Thanks Rich for your encouragement! It’s gonna be just fine, I know. How’s your family?

    My family is good, we’re sleeping pretty well. It’s difficult leaving for work when they’re sleeping and then coming home in time to pretty much eat dinner and go to bed. If I wasn’t in bed for 11 hours a night that’d be different. The only way we get enough sleep is to go to bed early 🙂

    Now that sounds like my school – I love Starbucks coffee. Some people think it doesn’t taste any different than “regular” coffee. To that I say “phooey”. It is the most fantastic tasting coffee on the planet – especially the Christmas Blend. Truly a pleasure to drink first thing in the morning, mid-morning, at lunch, mid-afternoon, before dinner, after dinner, in the evening and before bed (decaf of course!).
