it has begun

student teaching. sort of. kiddos arrive next wednesday.

i am so. f*ing. tired. already.

i also stabbed my thumb opening my wine tonight. and am covered in paper cuts. and smell like lamination.

so. i’ll write more later. but basic take-aways

1. my teacher/team: LOVE

2. the school: LOVE

3. the whole process: LOVE. like. i feel confident that this is my path now.

4. the hours: HATE. i had a convo with J, one of the teachers in our third grade hall, about how caffeine is a fuel for teachers. i seriously saw a kindergarten teacher guzzling coffee from a travel mug designed for frat boys who like to bring mini-kegs everywhere.
