Tomorrow is my last day of teaching a class for this school year. It’s been quite a learning experience for me. “Make it up as you go along” is not a good teaching style for a first-time teacher. Hopefully next year I’ll have a textbook, that would’ve really helped. Besides that, I guess I just got tired as the year went on.
I think I’ve been just as burned out as the students for the last few weeks. Teaching the class was fun, but I’m glad it’s over. I’ll be doing it again next year, but I’ve vowed to not teach it from 12:00 – 1:00. That’s the worst possible time for me. By noon I have to come home and relax for a least a few minutes or I just can’t make it through the day. I don’t see how real teachers do it.
