I'm never sure if I sound like an annoying complainer when I talk about how hard I'm finding student teaching and I don't want it to sound like I dislike teaching because I really do love it. It's just that after being really good at being a student for 16 years, I'm having to switch to being the teacher and although I've been responsible for myself for the past 4 years at college, it seems a lot more real now that I'm working all day. And I think this is normal to feel overwhelmed by the massive change from being a student to working full time no matter what your career is. Or at least I'm hoping so!
It hasn't been all overwhelming though! I got to meet up with 2 of my friends and had a lovely time with both of them. It was so good to be with them and laugh and have some real talk about life. I am feeling more and more successful teaching and getting to know my students better which I really enjoy. I'm also starting to find or make more time to do things I enjoy like blogging and reading.
