I just finished my first day as a substitute teacher. So far so good. At least I’m pretty sure I didn’t mess up. We’ll see if they call back. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting a call this morning. It was really weird to have to be woken suddenly at 7:20am and rush and be at school asap. Felt vaguely familiar. 😛
Being on the other side of the desk is rather a surreal feeling. So is sitting with the teachers at lunch. Walking over to the table with a tray in hand not knowing exactly what to is never fun no matter how many times you’ve been through that first lunch hour ritual. I have nearly 20 years of being a student under my belt, being the teacher is…new. And the Middle Schoolers weren’t nearly as terrifying as I thought they should be. Maybe I got them on a good day.
All in all it was an interesting day. I’m surprised how quickly it went even though all I did was basically sit there and do nothing. I hope I get to do it some more for a range of grades and classes. 🙂
In honor of the math class I sat through today I believe this video of Pi is in order.
Plus it sounds pretty.
