I am in my classroom today (ended up not tutoring), so I cleaned out old files and just tried to organize! Are there any other educators out there overwhelmed at the prospect of next year? Was I like this last year? I don't think so. I know that I'm still learning a lot with reading workshop and I am doing more now for the kids than I did a few years ago...just overwhelmed at where to begin. What procedures to teach? What assessments to use? What order to use? Whew! I'm probably overwhelming you as you read.
However, in response to my last post, what does it look like to follow Jesus as a teacher? I've come up with a small answer. We are talking about worship at church. Giving my career to God and allowing Him to sustain me, provide me with resources, and doing the very best I can for these kids is just a part of it.
