i have been student teaching full-time for the past 1.5 wks and i'm EXHAUSTED!! on the plus side i have am done done done with my evals for student teaching. i did okay with my last eval it wasn't my best but it wasn't my worst either. i did pretty good with my final eval but i keep getting in trouble for not knowing my content. why don't i know my content? i don't know my content because a) i had georgia history not sc; b) i have a minor in jewish studies not normal history; c) getting the lesson plan during first period planning is not the best way for me to "learn" something so i'm annoyed but understand why it's said i don't know my content. another thing that was told to me during my final eval was that i didn't handle asking off for my religious holidays the correct way. um... they were in october and it's now april?!?! i believe i should have known this fact earlier but hey i know it now? i mean really people.
another situation occurred that has made me cranky but i'm not ready to discuss it yet. let's just say i was LIVID and LIVID jen isn't good. yesterday i managed to leave at 7:30 and get home around 9:30 can we say long day? i was so exhausted i passed out with the lights on. wow i'm a winner ha ha! tonight was date night with the boy toy and it was fun. i made friends with the waitress because well i like strangers. ha ha! daddy is having surgery tomorrow on his arm so let's get those prayers going. he forgot to tell me so i won't be there but i'll be home afterwards for all the fun of drugged up daddy. hmm.. what kind of presents should mommy and i ask for? ha ha! it's late i'm tired and cranky so night yall...

so i have spent the past few weeks/months trying to change myself and not be such a princess but yeah that's not working for me. i am a princess and i'm okay with it. what's wrong with being a jap? what's wrong with liking the finer things in life? what's wrong with this? i'm not a horrible person, i love talking to strangers no matter how crazy they are dressed. ha ha! i do live in the south people. :)
i was seven when i announced that i was the princess and i stand by it!

i am sitting here in class and haven't been paying attention since about 6:30 and it's now 7:05. why i haven't been paying attention you may ask? there was math involved! anytime i hear the word math i freak out and can't focus. i am sure the fact that i've been in school since 7:45 this morning doesn't help but seriously people numbers + jen = panic.
i have also started teaching all 4 classes and it's going ok. my first 3 classes are okay not great but okay. sixth period is evil. i love them but they don't listen to me. i have explained to them that i am not a big scary man but a short, loud lady. they don't take me seriously because i am a student to them not a teacher. i hope that next year that doesn't happen. i don't think it will but i still have that fear.
i am busy making lesson plans and trying to plan neat activities but those don't always work and especially not when you work with a man who doesn't quite understand how you operate! i'm a creative person and i want my creativity to show but i don't think it will happen until next year when i have my own classroom and can do neat projects.
here's to next year! ha ha!
