My first year of teaching starts in a little more than a month. I have done no planning at all. Part of it is I am working (not as a teacher) and my husband and I are in the process of buying a house. But I don't even really know where to begin. I feel like everything I sort of learned about in my alternative certification class is completely gone from my mind. I feel like I have no idea what I am doing, and I am procrastinating because I have no idea where to begin. I do have a copy of the textbook for biology, but I may have to teach something else as well - they don't know yet. I have a piece of paper with objectives that were used last year for the first unit. And I went to Walmart to buy 100 of the 200 spiral notebooks I plan to get for what purpose, I don't know, and 8 sets of colored pencils. Some colored folders for organizing something I haven't thought of yet. (Can you tell how lost I am???? Discipline plan? I am currently reading Love and Logic but I must not be getting anything from it. Starting to freak out.
