Yesterday was speech day for my Friday students. I have 13 students on the official class register, but only 6 showed up to deliver their speeches. And then two left because of a minor misunderstanding. Of the four who delivered their speeches they did well for the first time around. I look forward to hearing their next speeches.
Although I really wanted to break the trend of un-inspired Friday outfits, I am not so sure that this sweater and trouser combo really achieved that. It’s a lot to ask of two simple pieces. But, that is not to say that I don’t like the outfit. I liked it enough that I wore it. I have been trying to wear this sweater since I received it at Christmas. But, it has been giving me problems.
It is cut very close and it’s a thin knit so it’s a challenge to find the right bottom to wear with it. Also, I love the gathering detail on the shoulder, but it creates an odd neckline. And then it’s like, do I wear a necklace or a scarf? Or, do I let the shoulder detail serve as the accent? Some clothing items are like that– unruly children, but you love them anyway!
Two weeks from yesterday, my mentor will be visiting my classroom to assess my teaching abilities. I am both excited and nervous. I am excited to hear her feedback and suggestions since I have been having a rough time with this particular class, but I am also nervous because I want to do well and succeed. I really enjoy teaching and I want to continue teaching with my college for a long time.
Any teachers out there with any advice? I’d love yo hear it.
