Finish Line is Closing in..
Okay, so I haven't updated the week before because well I'm done my FINAL EVALUATION!!!.. Hecks yeah.. I did sort of have a meltdown last week though.. over something really stupid.. I think it was the stress of full time teaching or something.. I could point out some things that happened last week, that I can remember.. Let's see..
I started to do a random fact thing with "my" grade 10's.. which was fun.. co-op wasn't in the room, so the kids were more open to saying something about themselves.. Then on Friday I finally did my "favorite teacher activity".. which was fun.. They were all wondering why I was doing it.. I told them "because it's a a random act of kindness"
Oh yeah.. I handed in my final assessment this last Wednesday.. a fellow intern from another school came to observe at my school.. then today I went to his school to get a different environment.
I also went to an international/cultural/powwow thing that the school was doing yesterday.. That was cool.. ate some food, heard some cool music, watched some metis jigs.. it was fun.. Just too damn cold outside..
What else... umm.. Musical finished up last Saturday as well.. I was asked to help tape the last one.. so I did.. I even got a nice little complimentary gift from the cast.. when I really didn't do anything.. aww.. On a sidenote.. it's freakin freezing in my classroom..
I gave back two classes to my co-op this week as well.. CCA9 and Math10-P4.. I feels weird to not teach grade nines.. I miss them already.. They seem kind of sad too.. they have to do textbook work.. which kind of sucks.. and they also have to be really quiet.. compared to my class when they like to talk more.. I feel kind of bad cause they seem more scared or something..
I'm still marking the damn math posters.. I got 5 partially done.. I just have like 11 left to do.. ugh.. That is my goal this weekend.. I promised them by Tuesday.. I also just want to have to do nothing in my last week.. But that won't happen.. lol.. I'm thinking of giving out a printup of the marks for my math10 class so they have an idea of what to work on or rewrite after christmas.. before the final..
I feel bad that I won't be there to prepare them for their final as well.. I might try to make arrangements with my co-op.. we'll see..
I can't believe it's coming to an end.. It's been quite a ride these last 4 months.. ups and downs.. I'm really sad just thinking about it..
Now I have to find a job.. and leave these kids that I've grown to care about to continue highschool without me there to guide them.. I guess that's what my first job is all about..
