Schools are closed this week for Februrary Recess, so I won’t be going to my practicum placement this week. But last week, the class that I worked with during the Fall Semester invited me to help chaperone their field trip to the Strong Museum. It was nice to see all of the kids again and see how much they have learned since I left in November. We all had a lot of fun, and I was able to speak with the principal there about substituting and possible job openings for next school year. It would be really nice if my time there as a practicum student could lead to a possible job for next school year.
I have officially submitted my first job application! I got an email confirming that they recieved it, and then another letting me know that I should get a call in early March to schedule an interview. I’m really excited about having my own classroom, and I hope that my interview goes well enough to promise me a job… keep your fingers crossed for me!
