This year of teaching is going to look very different than my previous two. After much deliberation and deciding I couldn’t do my two hour commute, I chose not to renew my contract with my school last year. There weren’t many Spanish openings around me so I’ll be spending this year substitute teaching. This could get interesting.
I’m nervous and excited about this change. Classroom management is something I feel I need to get more comfortable with so I’m looking at subbing as sort of a boot camp in this area.
On an incredibly positive note, I have already committed to an eight week long-term assignment teaching Spanish 1, 2 and 3 this Fall so that will be nice for a few months. Apart from that I don’t know what to expect as far as how busy I’ll be or how often I’ll be working.
I anticipate a lot of learning during this process and am anxious for the new year to start. I hope to have time to develop some units when I’m not subbing and will keep you posted on that as well as other lessons I learn this year (I’m sure they will be numerous!).
