Hello, everyone! I have been a long time reader of this forum but I finally made an account. I am in need of some advice and guidance. I have a bachelor degree totally not related to education but something waaaaay different. But I decided to try teaching. I went through an alternative certificate program and also I got a job as a teacher assistant for one school year. My staff liked me enough to offer me a position at their school, second grade. I accepted but now I am incredibly nervous. I have no teaching degree.....My alternative certificate program is bleh. I dont even know how to really create a lesson plan. (Do you guys have any resources that show how to create a lesson plan, that could help me? I would love to take a look at them) And basically I didnt really learn much in my alternative certificate program. However, I always liked school and while working as a T.A. I loved working with students and staff. I just dont know how to go from here. Maybe i made a mistake in accepting this or should i still continue with this offer? What should i prepare for over this summer? I dont really have anyone to turn to at this time.
