Day 101

After a long break, my mentor from the UC Santa Cruz New Teacher program came back for a second five-week consultancy. And with her visit I got a chance to answer my questions about how my classroom looks to an outside observer. Today was a decent day overall, aside from the usual problems with the usual characters . So things might have looked better than usual. Still, it felt good when she said she saw vast improvement. I'm tired of my preoccupation with classroom management, I know it's shown on this blog. It's nice to think that moving forward I can focus on actual teaching - lesson planning, guided reading, writing and math, differentiation, etc. 86 days left. 86 days to get it right with these kids and to figure things out for the next batch.
