thoughts | the last week of summer

Today marks the last week of my summer.
I have my first student teaching meeting this Thursday and then lots of classroom setup, meeting teachers, and meeting parents the next week.
Then, school will begin.
The great unknown in my life will be known.
Student teaching has been a pretty sore subject around here.
I had what you might refer to as a “meltdown” last week.
An, “I’m not prepared, do I really want to do this for the rest of my life, what if I’m just not skilled at this” tear-ridden meltdown.
Which came almost out of nowhere one morning.
And my sweet husband.
Try explaining why women cry to a 22 year old man.
Just try.
He handled it so well.
Even if he didn’t quite understand, he was sympathetic, just let me cry while he wrapped his arms around me, and told me, “You’re gonna do great.”
Thanks, buddy.
And, hopefully, I will do great.
And I will get to see if this type of teaching is what I want to do with the rest of my life.
{Or a least a big chunk of it.}

    hahaha. Sounds like he handled it well!

    You will do great though. I'm sure it's so scary, but I bet you'll love it.

  2. Have an amazing last week of summer, dear! I'm sure student teaching will be wonderful and really solidify in your mind if teaching is what God has in store for you. 🙂
