I just graduated back in December and have been substituting since then. I'm really hopeful that I will get a teaching job for the next school year. Subbing has been nice because it has given me a chance to be alone in a classroom, but I can also see how the regular teacher does things. (I'm all about stealing great ideas!). Anyway..I am so excited to get my own classroom (eventually). I have already starting typing up routines/procedures, introduction letters to parents, how I want my classroom set up, and gathering other ideas as well. Is there anything else I can do to get prepared?? I know it's tough because who knows what grade I'll get...or if I'll get one at all. I just want to get a head start on as many things as I can.
