|at Two Writing Teachers!|
... until just a few days ago! I now know that I'll be teaching high school Spanish next year (no idea what levels yet!) at the high school I graduated from. It will certainly be a new and exciting experience for me to be in one school for the whole year! I'm somewhat nervous, as the only time I taught high school was way back in student teaching, and I've never had the same students for an entire year.
The current principal of the school was the assistant principal while I was a student, and I emailed him to let him know that I'm excited for this opportunity. He made me feel a lot better with his reply:
His enthusiasm is contagious and I really am looking forward to being in his building. The magnitude of the change is enough to give me a strange feeling in my stomach, and I'll miss my sweet 6th & 7th graders immensely, but hopefully it will turn out to be a really positive experience! (Besides, it will be amazing to really "belong" to one building for an entire year!)
