Things that I am worried about recently:
1. Being a good MOH- I am the maid of honor for my very best friend who I have known for 17 years!! We grew up across the street from each other! We went to the same college and were roommates. We have been through everything together. Now, I get to watch her become a wife (Wow! I'm tearing up just talking about it! I'm such a girl!). I worry about if my speech will be good enough or if I'll cry the entire time and no one will understand a word of it (I hate giving speeches unless it's to 20+ little kids! Haha!), if I am doing enough for her, if I'm doing a good job, etc. I've never done this before and I want everything to be perfect for her. Any advice from experienced MOH's??
She carried me down the aisle at our graduation!
2. Being a good substitute teacher- I have seen that teachers fill out evaluations about substitute teachers, but we never get to see them! I always wish I knew if they thought I did a good job or what I could do better. The only way I know is if they request me to sub for them again or they tell me I'm doing a good job. I'm a person who NEEDS feedback!!!! Do I worry too much?
3. Finding a teaching job- It's getting to be that time of year again, where I need to start filling out applications (my favorite..NOT). I worry so much that I won't get a job. The teaching world is so hard! In the state of Ohio, they keep changing things, where we need more and more to be qualified to teach. Now, they say you need a Reading Endorsement. Do I go back to school for it or do I wait? I already went back and got the 4th and 5th Grade Endorsement, so I'm certified to teach Pre-K through 5th grade now! I thought that would help me get a job, but now I don't know because of this Reading Endorsement thing. I honestly can say I am so glad I subbed this year, for sure!! It has honestly made me a better teacher all around and has exposed me to so many more schools, experiences, and different ways of teaching!! I have LOVED it!!! I'm ready to have my own classroom though! I hope I find a job...
4. Not knowing what the future holds- I worry so much about not knowing what the future will bring. Where will I get a job? Will I get a job? If so, what grade will I teach? Will I be subbing again next year? Will I have to move? Will Colin get a good job and have to move? The list goes on...
Okay enough of my worrying..I'm sorry for venting about my worries. Sometimes it feels good to tell someone or my blogger friends. Thank you for listening. By the way, every school around here had a snow day except our city schools (It's not fair!)! Haha! At least I still got paid!! Here is my 2 Hour Delay Outfit!
