Seriously my stress levels are at an all time high right now.
30 days from now I will be in the classroom for 100 hours.
BEFORE that starts I have due:
-an interdisciplinary unit (plus an extra pre & post assessment)
-3 journals + a complete set of notes & free-writes
-classroom management plan
-rough draft of an 18 week semester plan (lesson plans & what not)
I also have 0 time to do any of that by the way because I do work from time to time & have other commitments.
Even after the 100 hours starts I still have class 3 days a week that I need to attend on top of teaching/observing 5 days a week. Nope, there aren't 8 days in the week... damn.
As far as the 100 hour goes, it starts in 30 days & yet not a soul knows where they will be placed. I also don't know what I am going to do about my job. I'm not getting rid of it but I'm already starting to get very minimal hours due to business slowing down & school taking a couple days a week out. Once I start teaching there will be 3 days I absolutely cannot work & 2 more days with limited availability. My very small amount of hours has me freaking out about $$.
Oh yeah, & then there's this little thing called student teaching that I'll be doing next semester. As far as I know one of the people writing me a letter of recommendation to even get accepted to do my teaching in Texas, hasn't written it yet....it's due in 11 days. I still don't know when I'm leaving. I still don't know where I'll be living. I still don't know how the hell I'm supposed to figure that out when I'm living nearly 1300 miles away. The one potential roommate I have won't email me back. I don't know how I'll afford anything since I won't have a job while I'm down there since a)I'll be in the classroom all day & b)what's the point when I will be living there 16 weeks tops.
Thanks for letting me bitch. Congrats if you made it through.
