Well that didn’t take very long. I started a new job this week, First Grade Teaching Assistant position, and I’m already sick as a dog. It was a disastrous beginning of the week when Connecticut had a surprise morning snowstorm. Of course, I drive a little two-door Yaris and had to trek over a mountain to get to the school. The last day of March and it snows potato chip-sized flakes. Really!?!?
I did okay this week on the new job. I find it very difficult to be with the kids, a lot harder than I thought it would be. I’m not exactly comfortable with them, although I think I do alright teaching them one-on-one during classroom activities and assignments. I think this is a good experience for me either way, and at least now I know that the education industry is definitely not something I’d like to be a part of.
Hopefully this was the last snow of the season; I’m pretty sure it was.
