Hello from the U.P!
I found this site and forum previously, but decided to jump in as a registered member this morning. I will be starting my student teaching Jan 6th and I am pretty nervous! I have loved college courses and learning about my content area (science), but feel ill prepared for teaching a classroom of teenagers. I have read everywhere that support of others is key, so I am reaching out for inspiration and support as I undertake this big change in my life. I am recently married and mom to a ten year old girl and step-mom to a 14 year old boy. I worry a lot about having time for my husband and children as I enter this new profession. I am 33 years old and have had the experience of owning my own art/ painting business the past ten years, as well as numerous part time jobs during my college education the past four years. I am hopeful that this experience juggling life will help me along the way.
