Have you ever had one of those days where you felt like you were walking on clouds? Everything was going right? You were on your game? I had one of those yesterday :-)
Yesterday I taught my first lesson and overall it went amazingly. I was so nervous all day but once I got in front of the students, I was a different person. I felt confident and didn't stumble over my words like I usually do. I was able to be funny yet serious at the same time. I wasn't act like I was above the students, I worked at the same level as them and they responded well. My cp was really happy with my lesson and the things I did right. I had command of the classroom and seemed so at home there. I really think its because of the teaching program I'm in. I knew to have the students read the directions instead doing it and modeling during the directions. I gave positive re-enforcement after each and every group presented their collage.
I was telling Dougie last night that I really felt like a teacher yesterday. I really think I can do this! I told my advisor about how the lesson went and she was so proud. She asked me if I had any teachers in my family because it seems to be in my blood. What a huge compliment!
Anyways, I'm getting ready for class. I just wanted to share how my day went.
